  • Pillion Seat Stuck

    Hi All,

    Couldnt find a related thread however please feel free to correct me if you know of one

    I did an overnight ride the other weekend and took the cowl off and put on my pillion seat. Unfortunately now, my pillion seat does not want to budge and come off.

    Now under the pillion seat is a first aid kit (which doesnt leave much room) and there is also a harness strapped to it for my tail bag. So I am assuming something may be caught somewhere.

    I have an 09 gsxr1000. Does anyone have any tips they could possibily give me or should i just take to a shop?

    Thanks
    SC

    Try pushing it down or leaning on it when you turn the key

        Is the key turning ? and if so does it appear to be pulling the cable, otherwise the catch inside the LHS rear fairing (that houses the indicator) might have come undone.
        If so, take the clips out that secure this fairing and you can get your hand in to re-connect the cable from the rear of the bike.

            if the key isn't turning there is probably something underneath the pillion seat pressing up against the cable/locking mechanism. I had a small issue like this when I tried to fit a pair of thongs under my cowl.

            my only advice is to jiggle jiggle jiggle...

              take off the 2 plastic trims along the side of the tank (single allen head screw at the front, push studs and velcro along the middle and back) and undo the riders seat (2 allen head bolts near the back of tank. From there you can reach up and release, or undo all neccessary fairing pieces to get to the latch. Five minute job, max

                  this used to happen on my old zxr250, the metal hook was touching the fairings slightly so turning the key didnt apply enough force. i would just get some kind of metal rod and push the hook with that and it would come straight off.

                          so, there's pressure upwards on the lock and it cant release.

                          get that watchfull peron to apply pressure downwards as you turn the key.





                          why do women always pack so much stuff?

                          ps........

                          oh? got any crc lube stuff? soak the lock and mechanism ,even push the key in half way,use the tube you get with[auto]lube spray cans and soak the internals of the lock.

                              Naaaaaoooooooooooooo!!!

                              You should never use liquid lube on any locks unless you absolutely have to.
                              If you can get any movement in there at all, apply a small puff of graphite powder (I have some if ever it's needed) You'll be amazed how often that solves it
                              Always use dry lube in locks, or else you'll get dirt in there and wear the lock prematurely.
