SOURCE: Yamaha Virago XV700 - 1987 Seat Removal

Most Yamaha models have 2 bolts holding the seat on, usually located between the top shock mounts and the side covers. You should be able to find them without too much trouble, but remember- they are metric. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 96 yamaha

I believe theres 2 small bolts under front of seat...if you pull the cushion back you should see them. Remove the 2 bolts and the front of the seat can lift up....then slide the seat forward as there is a plastic tab that holds the rear of the seat into a slot. The seat should lift off once the tab is clear.

How do I charge the battery on a 2002 HD Fatboy. I know it is under the seat but I'm not sure how to remove the seat.

The seat should have a tab on back with one bolt. Remove bolt pull back to release front of seat from tab.Before you do check for wiring that pulls out from under seat on left? side that is hook-up for Harley brand trickle charger.Some models have that,so?Good luck.

Battery location

Download a manual at this site:-

"The battery is located under the rear seat cushion.
To access the battery, see “Removing the Rear Seat
Cushion” in the Index. You don’t need to access the
battery to jump start your vehicle. See “Jump Starting”
in the Index."
