seat lock stuck and easy fix

Post by lanny » Sun Jul 01, 2018 2:07 pm

The dreaded seat lock gremlin struck today, i looked on here for a solution and found a few however, heres what worked for me.
Lifted each corner of rear seat to expose two philips head screws holding the seat fairing, removed these. Lifted front seat just enough to get at the tail fairing allen bolts, removed them. Removed the two plastic clips on the underside of the seat fairing, slid seat fairing back enough to get at the tail light fittings and released them. Slid the whole fairing back and simples, the seat mechanism is there to be worked on.
The little locating nylon fixing on the seat cable had become loose in its holder so a squeeze of the bracket to trap the fixing firm enough to keep it retained................................Could be helpful if not already on here.
