Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Hi there should be a lever on the left side of the seat towards the back, it doesn't look like a lever more like a helmet holder, move it up or down an the seat should come off

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.

yep you need some extra hardware to support the passenger. I've looked for about 30 minutes and I can't find one where I always go.....Ha I found one!
if this doesn't work it is ronayers.com click OEM parts on the left tab and click online microfiche, then go kawasaki - motorcycles and then go from there selecting your bike............so now your looking at a long list of categories huh........click optional parts and there it is
you need 35011A, 32046, 132A (2) to have a seat.....as far as the other parts that entirely up to you....of course your going to need the bolts as well but you can buy them at your local hardware store cheaper than on here but thats up to you
I hope this helps.......skim that picture and choose what you want or need I dunno if you have the passenger pegs or not and so on and so fourth.........hope to see your riding one day they are great bikes!

Remove the passenger seat, find the two bolts n the right and left side of the rifer seat - remove them.

Testimonial: "do not have manual to bike - need to remove the seat to have access to the battery. thank you."
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
