    Stupid question from a new Bros owner

    Hi

    Just bought a Mk 1 650 and have a stupid question... How on earth do you get the seat off? ops:

    there is a seat lock below the seat in the right rear.
    put the key in and turn to the right. Now there is a piece of chrome
    at the bottom of this mechanism, pull it straight down while lifting the
    rear of the seat up.

      I broke my seat cowl trying to get the seat off, whacking it over and over with the heel of my hand because I thought it was "stuck." ops: I figured it must only slide into a slot-and-tab sort of thing, and never dreamed there was a seat-lock. This was back when I first bought the bike; I had no manual, no friends that knew bikes, hadn't found the listserv yet, and was way too impatient to wait and bring it to a mechanic!

          I took a grinder and cut mine off, on both subframes I have had. Now I have that little cable I just tug on whenever i want to take my seat off...

            Yep, another convert. Yeah baby, they look even better with the rear stripped down like that

            You're welcome...
