YZF600R (1994 - 2007)

Insert the ignition key into the seat lock, located on the left side of the tail fairing above the left passenger foot peg. Twist the key clockwise to release the seat lock mechanism.

Grasp the rear portion of the seat and lift it off of the motorcycle's subframe. Pull the front of the seat away from the gas tank until the tab under the front of the seat is free of the subframe.


Hold the seat over the subframe to reinstall it. Hook the seat's tab under the cross-member below the base of the gas tank.

Push the seat forward slightly, then lower the rear of the seat onto the motorcycle's subframe.

Push down on the rear of the seat until the seat lock mechanism clicks into place. Remove the ignition key from the seat lock.
YZF-R6 (1998 - Present)

Insert the ignition key into the seat lock on the left side of the tail fairing. 2006 and newer R6 models place the seat lock under the tail fairing, near the left rear foot peg. Twist the key clockwise to release the seat lock mechanism.

Grasp the rear of the passenger seat and lift it up slightly. Pull the seat toward the rear of the motorcycle until the hooks under the front of the seat are free of the tabs built into the subframe under the tail fairing.

Pull the rear corners of the rider's seat up to reveal both mounting bolts. Unscrew the bolts with a 5 mm Allen wrench. Lift the rear of the seat up, then pull it away from the gas tank until the tabs under the front of the seat are free of the cross-member below the base of the gas tank.

Slide the rider's seat tabs under the frame cross-member to reinstall the seat. Lower the back of the seat onto the subframe, then screw the mounting bolts into place with a 5 mm Allen wrench.

Hook the front of the passenger seat onto the tabs built into the subframe under the tail fairing. Lower the seat onto the fairing and press down until the seat lock mechanism clicks into place. Remove the ignition key from the seat lock.

How do I straighten the handlebars out?

Assuming they are not bent...there is a bolt on top of the goose neck (the part that goes into the frame) Loosen it and turn the bars to straighten them,then retighten the bolt. If they won't turn, tap the bolt with a hammer...sometimes the 2 parts freeze together.

My versys fell over in a parking lot and now my handlebar is not square with the front tire. How can I make this adjustment?

Sounds like you bent the bars ? If they are not bent loosen the risers square em up and tighten risers.

I just bought the bike , and have just noticed the front fork is bent , it looks like the left fork bends foward about an inch , is this normal

Bent forks are not normal, most likely got damaged in shipping.... There is a spec that you shoudl be able to get from the bike maker.

Why does bike size is important?

It is clear that wearing a shirt two sizes too small would be uncomfortable, and wearing a shirt two sizes too large wouldn't be good either. In the same way, riding a wrong size bike will fit badly and make you uncomfortable, too. There are two main problems, one obvious and one a little more subtle.

The first big problem with a bike that doesn't fit is saddle height. You need the saddle to be just high enough to give your legs the right extension when you pedal. Too low and your legs stay bent too much all the way around; this doesn't use your leg muscles well and you wear out quickly. Too high and you rock back and forth on the saddle as you pedal, very uncomfortable. Either extreme (too high or too low) can also be very hard on your knees.

Saddle height is adjustable, of course, and if the bike frame is at least close to the right size, you'll be able to adjust the saddle to the proper height. If the frame is a lot too small, you can usually overcome this problem by buying a longer seatpost to move the saddle back up to where you want it. (But that causes other problems we'll talk about soon.) If the frame is much too large, you won't be able to drop the seat far enough to be usable, and there is no practical way around that problem.

The saddle on a bike can be adjusted up and down several inches, even as much as a foot if you consider replacing the original seatpost with a longer one. But the handlebars can't be moved nearly as far as saddles can. Most handlebars can be adjusted up and down or forward and back only two inches or so, and even this small change is often a complicated operation of replacing parts, not just loosening a few bolts.

This can lead to all sorts of problems. If the handlebar is too far away from the saddle, you have to bend down further and reach far out to grab the bars. This puts more weight on your back, arms and hands, which is uncomfortable. Having the handlebar too close to the saddle is less of a problem, but in extreme cases it can cause your knees to bump the handlebars when you are standing up to climb a hill. Having the handlebar a lot lower than the saddle is similar to having it too far away-you have to bend far over and reach further to grab the bars, an uncomfortable position. Having the handlebars high up is not a big problem, except that sitting upright slows you down. Your legs aren't as strong when you are sitting up, and that position causes more wind resistance when riding fast or into a wind.

Bike size has a big effect on handlebar position. If the frame is too small, you'll have to push the seat up high to fit your legs. You won't be able to move the handlebar up as much, so it will be a long reach back down to grab the bars, and your back will be quite bent over. If on the other hand the frame is too large, the bars will be up high but might be too far forward (since the frame gets longer as well as taller).

The tire doesn't move when you pedal

What kind of bike? Sometimes the handlebars are turned all of the way around and lock up the brakes, turn your handlebars all around the other way around. If, you have a bent wheel, replace it. Other than that, you were not too specific, it is hard to help without having the whole story.

Dropped my Suzuki in a mud hole, steering seems off a bit. Handlebars are staight but wheel slightly off. How do I fix?

you may have bent , or just twisted in the housing one of the forks ,, check the alignment of each , if it just twisted loosen the bolts for the hold downs of the fork assembly and align, if its bent ,, you must replace it

When I let go of my handlebars the bike shakes bad. Was told it was my tire. I replaced it but it didnt help. If i let go of the handlebars only for a second, it shakes bad....

You need to check the trueness of the rim, The front Axel my be bent. One of the fork tube may be bent. Fork tube oil in one of the tubes may be low. The neck bearings my need replaced or tightened.
