Hi Anonymous, seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tounge in the front that slides into a female reciever that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason when ever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backwards 3-5 inches. Next they may may have a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. A single screw can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. If you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a screw securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force seperation of seat material to see and gain acess to the screw. Finally there is the rear seat screw in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shinny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to NOT scratch the tour pak. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, it's lift up in the rear, slide backwards a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible. Good luck.

SOURCE: trying to remove seat center

Look underneath the bike at the bottom of the seat tube of the frame. There is a nut with a special "washer" on the end of the rod in the "pogo stick". Take the nut off and the spring loaded shock comes out of the seat post of the frame.

How do you take the seat off an FLHXXX


Hi Jac, seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tongue in the front that slides into a female receiver that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason whenever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backwards 3-5 inches. Next they may have a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. Then there is the seat strap that is secured on both sides, only one side needs to be removed. A single screw can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. If you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a screw securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force separation of seat material to see and gain access to the screw. Finally, there is the rear seat screw in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shiny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to NOT scratch the tour pak.

How do I remove seat of Harley-Davidson Trike?


Make sure the passenger backrest is out of the way first. Open the lid on the tour pack, lift the padded backpad and fold it back into the tour pack, trapping it under the lid as you close it. The screw will then be fully accessable. A magnetic screw driver is a nice thing to have. Drop the screw down into the works once or twice and you'll know what I mean.
Hope this helps.

Does anyone know of a drivers backrest for the dx


I doubt seriously if you're going to find a drivers back rest for your V-rod. The reason is the back rest is cnsidered to be a "touring" accessory and the V-rod is not generally considered to be a touring motorcycle.

I'd do a search online for "motorcycle seats" and see what comes up. Try Mustang Motorcycle Seats. They have good quality seats and reasonable prices. They also have the drivers backrest for a lot of their seats. If they offer a seat for the V-rod, maybe drop them an e-mail and ask about it.

Good Luck

How do I remove the back seat / backrest from a bmw 328IC 1997


Remove the headrests (if equipped). Grip the lower seat at the front part of the seat and pull upwards to clear the clips(1), and the remove the lower seat.
Fold down the armrest and remove the bolts behind the armrest. The upper seat(backrest) is then pushed up, pulled forward and then moved either left or right out of the vehicle from behind the seatbelts.
