Hi there should be a lever on the left side of the seat towards the back, it doesn't look like a lever more like a helmet holder, move it up or down an the seat should come off

I have an 85 Sabre and was looking for an answer to this as well. I read the daniels solution. Not sure what Mr. Daniels is smokin but was he dead wrong. First, the helmet lock has nothing at all to do with this procedure. Why he thinks that is beyond me. Also, there is no "lever on the frame" to push forward.
So, after tugging a little here and there on my seat, I stumbled on the procedure. Here it is: 1) Remove the side covers off of each side of the bike. They are only held in place by grommets at 3 locations per side. A small tug at each of the 3 positions will remove them. 2) You will now be able to see a bolt on each side of the bike that secures the seat. Remove them. 3) Now it's technique time. The seat is now only held in place by a plastic tab and a steel tab. The plastic tab is part of the seat bottom at the front of the seat. The steel tab is on the frame of the bike. That steel tab goes into a slot on the underside of the seat. So here we go. Grab the back edge of the seat and firmly pull it rearward and slightly upward at the same time. That will disengage the molded slot on the underside of the seat from the steel tab on the frame. Once the seat has been disengaged from the steel tab, you can angle the seat upward. Once the seat is angled upward about 30 degrees, pull the seat in a rearward direction to disengage the plastic tab on the underside of the seat from the frame of the bike.
Since the air cleaner on a Sabre is underneath the fuel tank, all Sabre owners who do their own maintenace have to know how to remove the seat. One of the fuel tank bolts is hidden under the seat, The other two are on the front sides of the tank.

You should probably get a service manual.
As I recall: Remove seat, gas tank, side covers and brackets, and plastic things in front corners of frame. Take off rubber intake thingy and slide out air filter cover toward the left side (it's a ***** because of the flap in front). Loosen metal intake housing plate, rotate and remove intake horns being careful not to bend the horns or drop screws down carb throats. Slide plate out.
All four carbs come off as one assembly. There are four rubber tubes connecting it to the engine. Loosen the hose clamps on the tubes and gently pry the carb assembly up. Find safe points on the carbs to pry where you won't break anything, and be gentle. If it hasn't come off before it will take some going from corner to corner till it comes out of the rubber tubes.
You can clean the jets without disassembling the "quad pack".
I put a little oil on the tubes to reassemble. Getting the horns back in is a bit tricky. The plate goes on loose, then they slide into the carbs and rotate as I recall. Good luck

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.
