Hmmm... I've removed my seat several times and don't remember any grommets. Do you have something on your bike that I don't have on my '02?granpa in Cincy said:To remove seat, remove the bolts in the passenger handles. Carefully remove them so as not to drop the grommets that they screw into.
You will want to lub those bolts before reinstall. Some tie wrap the grommets also.
Yep...couldn't put it better myself. You don't have to remove the backrest. I open the trunk, reach inside and pull the seat back. Then lift up on the front of the seat and slide it out. Ditto on the black bushings. I almost lost one once.MotorcycleBoy said:Here is how I remove mine. I remove the 4 bolts that hold the handles on. Open the trunk. Slide the seat all the way back until you can lift the front. Close the trunk. Now lift the front of the seat then pull forward to remove from under the passenger seat back. Reverse procedure to install. You do have to be very careful not to lose one or more of the bushings down between the rear fender and frame.
Dang! ... I guess I haven't been paying attention! While it's so cold around here that I can't ride I guess I'm going to have to take off my seat and see if anything is missing. :roll:Jim Mathis said:Ditto on the black bushings. I almost lost one once.
:lol: :lol: :lol: Don't feel bad .... after my CB install, I found a strange looking rubbery thing left over when everything was buttoned up. So, being the genius I am :lol: , I posted a pic here and said "anyone have a clue what this is??" Seems like lots of people knew :lol: :lol: 'cause I got lots of responses.Jim Mathis said:That's how I almost lost one Bob. Not paying attention. I saw this black thing laying in the grass ...
