Here is a copy from Chilton's CB450, 1970 and above, hope it helps. I had to reduce it to monochrome in order to post it. It was 769K in grayscale.

I have an 85 Sabre and was looking for an answer to this as well. I read the daniels solution. Not sure what Mr. Daniels is smokin but was he dead wrong. First, the helmet lock has nothing at all to do with this procedure. Why he thinks that is beyond me. Also, there is no "lever on the frame" to push forward.
So, after tugging a little here and there on my seat, I stumbled on the procedure. Here it is: 1) Remove the side covers off of each side of the bike. They are only held in place by grommets at 3 locations per side. A small tug at each of the 3 positions will remove them. 2) You will now be able to see a bolt on each side of the bike that secures the seat. Remove them. 3) Now it's technique time. The seat is now only held in place by a plastic tab and a steel tab. The plastic tab is part of the seat bottom at the front of the seat. The steel tab is on the frame of the bike. That steel tab goes into a slot on the underside of the seat. So here we go. Grab the back edge of the seat and firmly pull it rearward and slightly upward at the same time. That will disengage the molded slot on the underside of the seat from the steel tab on the frame. Once the seat has been disengaged from the steel tab, you can angle the seat upward. Once the seat is angled upward about 30 degrees, pull the seat in a rearward direction to disengage the plastic tab on the underside of the seat from the frame of the bike.
Since the air cleaner on a Sabre is underneath the fuel tank, all Sabre owners who do their own maintenace have to know how to remove the seat. One of the fuel tank bolts is hidden under the seat, The other two are on the front sides of the tank.

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

there is only one tank to fill on your bike, your getting confused by the reserve. The reserve is just on the fuel tap itself. It has three positions, on , off and reserve. In the on position your fuel tap will be able to drink about 90% of your fuel tank and then it wont be able to drain anymore, then you must turn your fuel tap to the reserve position and it will be able to drink rest of your tank approx 10% that is left. So next time you fill up at a petrol station make sure your fuel tap is set to on, then when your bike starts to splutter out of fuel you can turn your fuel tap to reserve and get yourself to the petrol station to fill up, making sure you then turn your tap to on again. If you keep running out on the reserve it can cause debris in your tank to clog your carb up.
hope this helps
