Providing that it is a stock seat, remove the screw at the back of the seat, (in the center of the fender), lift the rear of the seat and pull the seat towards the rear of the bike.

How do you get the seat off a 2008 Harley Davidson Sportster to change the battery

Hi, Jim 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.

How do you remove the seat?

Remove the screw at the rear of the seat. Pickup on the rear of the seat and hammerfist the center of the seat with your other hand, sort of forcing it both down and forward toward the tank. There is a post that holds the seat in place that fits into a church key style slot in the seat. You just have to force the seat forward enough slide it out.

I just want to change the battery on my sportster ,1200, 2002 how do i get the seat off, or do i need to?

yes, you really need to remove the seat. Although I am not familiar with your particular model, most Sportster seats are held on by a single bolt screwed into the rear fender at the very back of the seat. Remove the bolt, lift the rear end of the seat slightly, and pull it to the rear. There is a tang on the front of the seat that slips under the frame. Once out, you should be able to see the battery and the strap that holds the top battery cover down. Loosen the nut and remove the hold down strap and battery top cover. Remove the rubber strap that holds the battery into the tray. Disconnect the negative cable first when removing the battery. When installing the battery connect the negative cable last.

Good Luck

How do I remove the battery from a 2004 Custom 883 Sportster? Have been able to loosen it by removing the bracket on the left hand side, but terminal is still connected on the right, and can't get to it...

Take the seat off and go in from the top of the battery with a 10 mm wrench. That ought to get it unless they changed something. I can't say that I've worked on that particular model but most Sportsters are like this.
