Removing seat

I have an '07 C50c Metallic Silver/Tribal.
To remove driver's you have to remove passenger seat first
Remove bolt holding down rear of passenger seat
(s/b 1 Hex-key/Allen hd. bolt)
Lift rear end of seat and pull back to release
You will then see the (2) bolts holding the driver's seat (and passenger grab-strap) down.
Remove bolts, lift and pull toward the back of bike to release
That should take care of it...half of it anyway!
(Hope I didn't forget something important)
Good luck!

Take the seat off

  • Open tool box, at rear of seat, with key and unhook or unbolt the seat from inside tool box.
  • Pull lever on right or left side, up under the seat. It can also be at the rear of the seat, right or left side, again up under the seat. Lift seat off up and to the rear. Sometimes it's hooked on both sides with a rod or cable connecting both sides. These can break. Make sure both are unhooking.
  • Same as above only you use a key.
  • Remove the two bolts on either side at the rear of the seat. Pull seat to rear.
  • Nuts or bolts, at the rear and below seat, under the rear fender Remove bolts holding down the rear seat . Remove seat and then remove two bolts, at the rear, holding the front seat on.
  • Unlock lever on side of seat. Seat then pivots on two hinges to open. Can open to the right or left. Might have no lock.
  • Push button on side. Left side, I haven't found a push button on the right side... yet ! Can be locked or unlocked with a key.
  • Pull lever at front of seat, right or left side. Seat lifts up with the hinge at the rear.
  • Pull lever at rear of seat, right or left side. Seat lifts up with hinge at front.
  • Pull lever at front of seat, right or left, and whole seat comes off. Seat has pegs underneath that fit into rubber grommets on the frame.

    I need to charge the battery on my 2002 honda shadow its a 750 how do i remove the seat

    The seat has a bolt located in the storage compartment of the backrest, remove this bolt will give you access to the hold down bolts located on the rear fender for the split seat model, if your seat is not split, just removing the 1 bolt located in the compartment will fix your problem...Good luck & ride hard!!!

    How do you take out the front seats on a 2004 grand prix gt?

    You will need to crawl under the vehicle. The bolts holding them down are located there. You may need two people. One to hold the bolt secure insde the car and one to turn the bolt from underneith. There maybe as many as 6 bolts per seat. I am assuming these are bucket style seats. Tell me how it turns out, Raz

    Removing the seat of V-Star 1100 Classic 2001?

    is this just the seat itself or the seat cover? if its the seat assembly there should be 2 bolts holding the seat down located somewhere around the rear of the seat aprox 2 inches below the seat. if your talking about the seat cover you have to remove the staples thats holding the fabric down to the seat pan.
