Rear seat removal, fx yamaha jet ski, latch will not release the seat

As bad as this sounds its the only way. Grab yourself a 2x4 and a nice size prybar.
Lay 2x4 across the back grab handle as to not damage it then put prybar directly under seat latch and pop it up.

Im looking at an '04 road king custom to buy. Quetion is, is the seat a two piece where it can become a solo seat?

Depends on the type of seat that is on it. I don't think the stock seats are two piece. But, there are seats available to convert it to a solo bike. Mustang is the best buy for the money in my book.

Good Luck

How do i remove the rider seat on my 1999 yamaha R6

The Yamaha R6 has two bolts that hold the riders seat on. You have to lift the foam and push forward at the rear end of the seat. The outer left and the outer right edge. If the bike is original it will be a 5mm allen head bolt and simply remove the bolts on both sides and then lift the rear of the seat up. The front of the seat has a lip that slides under the fuel tank bracket to secure it and simply slide it rearward and out.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

How to install a solo seat on a vintage harley davidson motorcycle

On most vintage bikes, the seat is supported by a "T-bar" that connects to the frame between the fuel tanks on the front end and is supported by the spring seat post in the rear. Most of the solo saddles were designed to bolt to the "T-bar". Simply remove the "buddy seat" and bolt on the solo.

Now there are some conversion kits made that eliminate the spring seat post and bolt the saddle directly to the frame. Others have coil springs in the rear. These are better if mounting a solo on a rigid frame machine.

Good Luck

How to remove gas tank

Turn the petcoc(k) off and remove the fuel line. Next, remove the seat - remove the rear seat first then the front. Under the nose of the seat you will see a large bracket with two bolts - remove the bolts. There is a plastic tray holding electronics that is also attached to this bracket - push the center pin of the fastener down and the plug will come out (push it up, insert and push the pin flush to re-install). Next, lift the back of the tank and bracket up a little and pull it straight back and the tank will lift right off. The front of the tank is held in place by two little pockets - you will see this after the tank is off.

I hope this helps!
