    Come on dude!, It opens with your key on the right side as looking from the front
    of the bike. Keep the key turned and pull straight up on the back of
    the seat. There is a tab on the front right behind the tank, so when
    you are putting it back make sure that tab goes into the slot first.
    Wow, when you get the seat off you will also find your emergency tool
    bag! Good Luck! Hope this Fixsya!

On my 2007 Road star 1700 when I try to start it, it just clicks and battery is charged. What could be wrong?

Selenoid / starter motor.Try tapping gently as you push start with a small hammer but if no luck, needs to be removed, cleaned and serviced. Also possibility that a sensor is stopping it, eg in gear sensor jammed on.

Hi i have an 08 xv1900a midnight star & if i leave it parked in my garage for a couple of weeks when in go to start it there is not enough power in the battery to turn the engine over. any idea's?...

If there was some point at which you drained the battery too much (left the ignition or parking light on) and then recharged the batttery, the battery will no longer hold a full 12 volt charge, nor will it ever be able to hold a charge for more than a week thereafter. You need a new battery.
The other solution is a little obvious though -- why leave such a beautiful bike hiding in the garage for that long anyway?

Sound like battery isvery weak. just a clicking noise pressing starter button

It sounds like a battery issue.
If the voltage is low, its either a bad battery or a charging problem
