Question about Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a flat battery and can't get the seat off my 1996 Yamaha YZF 600R (Australian model?). someone said to put the key in under the left hand side of the seat cowling and it would work but the only place the key goes is the helmet holder thing. Please help.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, If have not been tried and from the Service Manual: "...On YZF models, insert the ignition key into the seat lock located under the left-hand side of the seat cowling, and turn it clockwise to unlock the seat. Lift up the back of the seat and draw it rearwards, noting how the tabs locates in the brackets (see illustration)..." Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    For some reason, the links and attachment failed. Let me repost:

    If have not been tried and from the Service
    Manual: "...On YZF models, insert the ignition key into the seat lock
    located under the left-hand side of the seat cowling, and turn it
    clockwise to unlock the seat. Lift up the back of the seat and draw it

    Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

2001 yamaha yzf 600r the key is turned to lock


you need to take the pressure off the steering, example, hold the steering just slightly off the full left or right position. Wiggle or move the handle bars slightly and try turning the key. Sometimes there may be too much pressure on the steering lock for it to move, Also some thing eles to try, try pushing down on the key as you turn it. Hope this helps.

Remove the seat


The two rear corners of the riders seat can be pulled back, you will find two allen head screws, simply remove them and the seat can be removed exposing the battery.
