Pillon for 06' Fatboy FLSTFSE2

I bought a pillion seat for my 06' Fatboy FLSTFSE2 The first one didn't fit so I sent it back and got another . ( I made sure it was the right product #) But, this one doesn't fit either. I mean it doesn't take a rocket scientist to screw 3 bolt in. Any suggestion?

Aftermarket is really tricky stuff bro sometimes some blacksmithing is required. oem is the easy and convenient way to ride and cool is not a bolt on accessory. you got to have class to show it. measure the locations and make the appropriate penetrations there is nothing sacred about the rear fender of your put so drill a whole in it and tack weld a nut underneath or just reach up there and catch it and be done widdit. like the guy on the gazelle infomercial said "you can do it!"

Just bought 96 savage 9 hours ago and ... dead battery. How do I get the seat off to charge the battery?

Going by my C800, there should be a bolt at the back of the pillion seat and one or two more underneath the pillion for the driver's seat which is simply hooked under the tank.

How do I get my backseat off my fatboy lo?

You didn't say what year model your Fatboy was but the earlier models had a large socket head bolt on either side of the seat. If your seat has the original hand strap across it, take the bolts out, pull the seat to the rear until the nose tongue under the nose of the seat disengages from the frame, lift the nose of the seat up and slide it forward out from underneath the strap.

Good Luck

Remove rear seat ti install saddle bags

Normally one bolt in the back and the pillion slides into the driver seat. Pulling back on the pillion after removal of the hold down bolt usually releases it

Thanks for helping, i would like to change the battery on my 2003 road king but do not know how. can you please tell me?

Rmove phillips screw holding down passenger pillon. Pull pillon back and up a little. Take 5/8" wrench and remove "nuts" now exposed. After removing pull seat up and back over studs. Battery is now exposed. Remove right saddle bag, right side cover, remove ECM fuse. Carefully remove 10mm(?) bolts holding battery cables on, before hand note and or label other connections if present. Lift battery up and out, replace with new, reverse steps.
Important note, battery is very tight fit, and must sit firmly in battery bos, and ALWAYS use a sealed battery. The cost $100+.
Hope this helps,

Remove the seat

First, remove the pillon seat behind the driver seat. Use a metric socket wrench to remove the mounting bolt at the back center of the pillon. Note the 'retaining strap' over the pillon. You can remove one of the side screws that hold this strap and swing it aside, but this is not absolutely necessary. Once the pillon mounting bolt is out, lift the pillon slightly and pull it to the rear. Be careful not to let metal parts scratch your rear fender. Now look at the hex socket bolts holding the driver seat to the rear fender. These are removed with a metric hex wrench (Allen wrench). Don't mess with these unless you can fit the bolt socket exactly. There should be a hex wrench in your Vulcan toolkit. When these have been removed, the driver seat can be lifted up and back to remove. It's a real mess under there, isn't it? To re-install, reverse the order of the above -- driver's seat goes in first, bolts secured and then the pillon. Don't force anything. If either seat is hanging up above its mounting position, you don't have the seat 'tongue' in its socket.

Pillion size for Tuono

does the rear footpeg ergonomics changes as well? Considering a used Tuono and since I ride often with my wife I was trying to find the most comfortable option. Also would I be better served to look for older models for 2 up riding? the UK 06 model came with a bigger seat and grab handel's the UK 07 comes with a small seat and strap but the seats will change between both so if you get the later model just pick up a seat off eBay. Hope this helps Mick.,,,
