Push in the direction that normally releases the seat (normally down) while turning the key and it will probably unlock. Sometimes the tension from the seat pushing against the lock stops it from unlocking.

SOURCE: Cannot remove the seat

seat latches often use a sliding tab & latch,your key is the 'handle'of the tab.spray lubricant into key hole and on latch behind may have to wiggle seat up and down as well,use your 'spare' key in case you have to ride it to the dealer,or a locksmith!

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Kawasaki

you may have to get a little forcefull with it , get a friend to bounce up and down on the seat while you try the lock, be carefull to not force the key too much as they are only brass and snap off easily. this has worked very well for me in the past.

I have a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 . I somehow have, when replacing the seat , gotten the seat latch jammed. Now, turning the key does not release the seat latch and I cannot get the key out of the seat...

you may have to get a little forcefull with it , get a friend to bounce up and down on the seat while you try the lock, be carefull to not force the key too much as they are only brass and snap off easily. this has worked very well for me in the past.

I need to add a battery in a 1999 kawasaki zx7r how to remove the seat on the bike

If you put your ignition key in the lock alongdide the rear seat and turn anti clockwise, the rear seat lifts from there and when removed the front seat will lift up.
Hope that helps.
