Where are the seat hold down bolts, 1984 Honda Saber 700

I had the 84 vf700S Sabre, and I suspect it\'s similar. Removing the seat on mine was simple. Take your key, unlock the helmet lock on the LEFT side of the bike under the passenger space. Once unlocked, the metal is a lever that pushes away from the locking hinge of the helmet lock and it releases the "middle" of the seat. The front of the seat is a tongue that goes underneath the tank. Hope this helps.

How do you remove seat

As far as I know the seat on the 650 is the same as the 800, in this case you should have a key slot on the front left just below the seat, use the bike key to unlock it, the seat then lifts from the front and can be lifted off, to put it back slide the back into the locking lugs and then just press it down at the front to lock.

Handlebars are bent


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.

Stopped sensing speed or give resistance

proceed according and fix it. God bless you
  • 1 Press the reset button to reset the system, then unplug the bike from the power outlet. Wait about five minutes, then plug in the bike and reset the system again. This usually solves most computericon1.png glitches or error readings.
  • 2 Check all basic connections first if the system won't turn on, or the display is partially functioning or not functioning at all. Ensure that the plug is securely plugged into a proper working outlet. Check to ensure that the cable is securely plugged into the front of the system, and that the cable doesn't appear damaged. If the cable is damaged, replace it immediately.
  • Sponsored Links
  • 3 Inspect the system display visually, looking closely for cracks. Also check to see if humidity has caused moisture to enter the screen. If so, you may need to replace the display.
  • 4 Check all connection points and latches. Latches should be lined up with all connectors and be securely in position. Push on the connection and listen for the snap when the latch locks into place. The computer or circuit board may need replacement if all connections are fine and the display isn't operating properly.
  • 5 Check all connections for the HR (Heart Rate) sensors. Check to ensure that both HR connections from the handlebars and the cable box are secure. Apply a conductive electrode creme to the handlebar sensor to see it produces a better connection. You may have to replace the handlebars or cable if no connection is being produced.
  • 6 Check to ensure the RPM sensor is properly aligned with the magnet on the flywheel and that the connection is secure on the RPM data cable. Reposition the sensor if it's not aligned properly; replace the cable if the connections are broken or the cable is visibly damaged.
  • 7 Move the bikeicon1.png away from large metallic objects, microwaves or other electronic equipment that may interfere with the bike's computer. Ensure that the bike is positioned on a flat, level area--otherwise, the bike will rock and feel unstable. Ensure that all knobs, pins and levers are installed appropriately, including pedals, crank and seat. Cranks should be connected at 180-degrees from one another. Seat pins should be seated completely and securely in the your designated pin hole for seat position.

    How do i remove the seat on a 1998 honda 800cc

    Behind the chrome helmet holder is a black l bracket. The bracket faces the bike. Turn the key like your going to put your helmet on the chrome bracket but instead reach behind it and pull the black bracket down. You'll hear the rear of the passenger seat click and the seat will lift slightly. Pull it up and back from the rear and it'll slide out. iIf you have a sissy bar (sorry, old school) you don't need to take it off. You'll see the plastic tool case holder. Between it and the front seat, are the bolts for the front seat. You can use a socket at an angle and they'll come off (be carefull not to drop them into the bike frame where they could get lost or damage something. You then lift the front seat from the back and it slides out like the back seat.

    How do I replace the battery on a 2001 Suzuki Volusia Intruder?

    To replace the battery:

    1- remove the rear (passenger) seat by removing the single bolt behind it. Remove the seat by lifting it up and back

    2- Remove the front (driver's) seat). Remove the two bolts behind it and remove the seat by lifting it up and back.

    4- Carefully remove the positive and negative battery cables from the battery, then lift the battery straight up.

    5- Place the new battery in the bike

    6- Replace the cables, red is positive (+), black is negative (-)

    7- replace the seats, and you should be good to go!
