First take off the seat, turn it upside down, unscrew the two screws and two bolts that hold the two parts of the seat together. Separate the pillion and rider seat (takes a bit of wiggling), now you can concentrate on the riders seat. undo the four screw that hold all the rubber gromets down (make a note of the direction they are facing), and unbolt the two small bolts on the front. The seat should now come apart, move the bracket at the back of the seat down a hole. Re-attach the two halfs of the seat at the front but this time one hole up. You should see a gap between the two halfs. Put the rubber gromets back on, this is where I went wrong the first time, TURN THE FRONT TWO 180 degrees and leave the back ones how they are. Screw everything back together and you have one raised seat my long legged friend.

    Yeah, you turn all four grommets around. Otherwise the seat won't be fully supported by all four grommets.

Simples! Under the seat at the front are two lugs holding the seat front. Undo and remove those bolts.

Again, on the bottom of the saddle about half way along is a metal bracket. Undo and remove the two bolts, the riders saddle will now come away. First, drop the metal bracket that came off with the riders saddle down to next holes. Now turn the four rubber supports, through 180 degrees so the higher part is outermost (these support the saddle aganst the frame) Now put the seat together, bolt the rear bracket onto its studs and the front of the saddle now bolts onto the lower of the two holes in the two front brackets.

Return saddle to bike

Job Done.

No headlights on 1250 bandit


Hi Anonymous, if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice a day.
