Seat lock wont open

Without pushing the ignition key in when turning it left from off position, lift the back of the seat while turning the key left. I have found the seat release spring under the seat gets weak, so you have to lift it manually. If you push the key in while turning it, it may bypass the seat release and lock the steering. Hope that helps.

How do i removemainseat

There is a seat lock on the LHS side of the bike just below where the front and rear seats meet.

Turn the key clockwise and remove the rear seat. Now turn the key anti clockwise and remove the front seat. If it doesn't release, just put a bit of pressure on the rear of the seat (or bang it with your fist) while turning the key.

I can not get the driver seat off of my 2002 roadstar. Is it cable connected or electronically attached to the ignition.?

If you have a custom seat unscrew the back screw. Then insert the key into the ignition. Turn right and then back to the original position. Then without pressing down on the key, while lifting the seat, turn the key to the left. You will feel the hatch release and the seat will lift in your hand. If you have a stock or a two piece seat, do the same with the key but lift on the front of the seat so it will slide out of the bracket. If you push on the key as you turn it left, you will lock the handlebars but not unlock the seat.

I can't get the driver seat off of my 2002 Yamaha Roadstar 1600. Can anyone help, please?

Roadstars have a seat lock operated via ignition switch.
Insert the key into the ignition switch. Turn the key in the counter-clockwise direction as far as you can (don't push down on the key...just turn). You'll hear a click release sound from the front end of the seat. The seat front should now lift for you. Sometimes the lock can stick so you may need to push down on the seat front while turning the key to get the latch released.

How to lift the seat

Dont know which model suzuki you have, but if its a GSXR with a split seat, I believe the lock for the seat is on the left side just under the passanger seat. Insert key and turn it to un-lock. While holding the key in the un-lock position, lift up the drivers seat where it splits from the passanger seat. from there, you can remove the passanger seat. Most other models you turn and hold the key in the un-lock position and lift up the back of the seat. On older modles, you turn the key and lift the seat from the side.
I hope this helps..
