Remove seat from 2002 Harley Fat Boy
Hi, Richard seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tongue in the front that slides into a female receiver that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason, whenever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backward 3-5 inches For Heritage Softails check for a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. Then there is the seat strap that is secured on both sides, only one side needs to be removed. A single screw can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. For Sportsters if you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a screw securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force the separation of seat material to see and gain access to the screw. For Touring bikes, there is the rear seat screw in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shiny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to "NOT" scratch the tour pack. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, you need to lift it up in the rear, slide it backward a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible.
