SOURCE: vibration

As per what Sev first said.... check all nuts and bolts. Not just the seat/sissy bar mounts, all the engine mounts, swingarm pivots, wheels, calipers, covers, bars, pegs, clamps.... everything. But most obviously the engine mounts, a loose or busted engine mount can make all sorts of odd things vibrate. While you're checking them out, make sure that any mounting plates or braces are not cracked, and that the bolts haven't stretched and are being torqued against their own threads, instead of the mounting hardware.

SOURCE: Engine light on/off sporadically while riding.

You don't have that on a 2002. Do you have a power commander on it? Sounds typical of the older style power commander ( IIIr ) one thing to pay attention to is does it do it under load? If it's not showing any historic codes and the bike rides fine, and you have a power commander 3r I wouldn't worry. It's normal. The older power commander lies to the ecm. Sometimes it gets confused and kind of glitches ( that's where the light comes from ) but if it has running issues to I would take it to a shop to find out what the codes are and go from there.

SOURCE: no start 09 Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.

SOURCE: My 2000 Ultra Classic when riding the power goes

When you're saying "everything stops", do you mean everything electrical stops? If that's the case and it restarts in about two minutes, it sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. I do not have a schematic for your bike but it has to be something that is not protected by the smaller fuses. If it were, the fuse would blow before the main tripped out. The main circuit breaker should be located right there with your other fuses. It'll be a metal can like device about a half inch wide, a half inch tall, and about an inch long. It should be 30-40 amps rated. Whatever the rating is, do not change it as it's designed to protect your wiring harness. It may have just gotten weak and needs to be replaced but this is rare. Have you added anything electrical lately? This could be just enough to "trip it over the edge".

Good Luck

How to remove seat on kawasaki 454

to remove the seat, you need to work the seat out from underneath the rear backrest pad. I just grab the top of the seat under the pad and pull it forward to clear the backrest.

5 the seat now should come forward and come out, there is a tab that is near the tank. make sure that when you reinstall the seat that you line up the tab molded on the seat to the tab on the frame. otherwise you may get a heck of a surprise when you put it back together and go for a ride

How do I remove the back rest from the car seat as a car booster?

If your Ferrari seat is the same as ours, you'll see that the backrest is connected to the base with two plastic prongs that you can see from the bottom of the base. I separated ours by standing on the base and pulling the backrest towards me - it takes a bit of force so be careful...and after making sure all the harnesses are not attached to the bottom!

How to remove seat cushion for repair

Since you mention two front seats, I assume you have bucket seats. These are pretty easy to remove, just look under the seats for the 4 bolts that go into the floor. You may have to feel under the floor for the bottom end of each bolt to get a wrench on it.

The rear seat is a bit more tricky. Remove the bottom cushion first, by pushing down HARD on the front edge of the seat (SIT on it!), and then, while pushing the front edge down, also push back on the front edge of the cushion - it will move back about an inch, and that will release the hold down hook that holds it in place. Then you can just lift out the seat cushion.

The rear seat backrest has two bolts that you can get at after you remove the seat cushion - they go into the floor under the bottom edge of the rear seat backrest. Take those two bolts all the way out, and then grab the rear seat backrest, push it back toward the trunk while you lift up on the bottom edge. Don't pull it away from the metal backing, just slide it up toward the rear window - that will release it from the holding hooks at the top of the rear seat cushion and the whole cushion can be lifted out of the car.

If your car has a center console in front, or a speaker grille in the middle of the rear seat, you will probably have to look around for the mounting hardware - the console is bolted to the floor, and you will probably have to take it apart or remove the shift knob to get it out. The rear seat speaker grille, if it is between the two sides of the rear seat backrest will be bolted to the metal braces behind the rear seat. You may have to climb in through the trunk to get at those.

Just a word of caution regarding Mustangs: The floors are an important structural part of the car, since it has no frame - if the floors are rusted, the car may very well be unsafe to drive - I advise you to have it inspected at a frame shop to see if it is able to be made safe to drive before you spend a bunch of money on a losing project.

Sportsman 500 X2 passenger backrest stuck in place

I too have a x2 mine is an 08 x2 800 stealth but I think it is all the same. You can start by looking over the safety latches located under the passenger seat and make sure everything looks to be working. second make sure your box is latched all the way on both sides. If it is and you can still dump with the seat out it is definitely the safety latch malfunction. Now to get it down pull the lever behind the passenger back rest and slam it down that usually always works for mine. Try doing what I said above and then take a real good look ant both the primary and safety latch for the seat and the box and then clean them and lubricate them with some wd 40 to make sure they are not just sticking. hope this helps

How do you make the britax monarch a backless booster?

While holding onto the base, push the backrest all the way backward. This will take some force. Once the backrest is flat, you can slide the axel off. Note that it only slides off one way - toward the open end.
