Default Rear seat locking mechanism?



Lock mounting bracket


lock pieces and extras
Hey everybody,

Took my bike apart several months ago to chase an issue, and when I did, while taking the rear seat off the whole locking mechanism just fell apart. Apparently, something had vibrated loose while riding and I hadn't noticed. Anyways, after replacing the fuel pump and removing the BAS the bike is all back together, except for the rear seat lock. I've got a picture of all the pieces I have left over or were stored on my workbench while working on other things. Can anybody post any pics or diagrams of how the whole locking mechanism goes together?

I had mine come apart on a long (for me) ride and spent about 70 miles with my big banana seat shifting back and forth every time I accelerated or braked. When I got home, I had my youngest daughter piece it back together because she is great at spatial relations! Anyway, this link is the best I could come up with - https://www.powersportsdiscount.com/...e30/seat-04-06.

Hope that helps! Oh, and once you get it back together, check everything again after the next couple of rides, just to make sure it's staying together. If not, a very little dab of blue Loctite might be in order...

You've got the same Competition Weeks fender eliminator as i have.

I'll take a pic of my set up and post it up.

I had the same problem with mine all working loose couple of months ago - i just played around till it looked right and hoped it would work lol

how it should look when finished;-) Or here at the start before i take it apart


taken off the holding bolt this is how the unit comes off


the locking pin


unit and spring


going back together


line up these two


and fasten it all up again making sure the locking pin is all the way out - so it catches the seat;-)

Pretty easy - not even a 5min job. But looks like you're missing the spring - if you cant find it - just use one about an inch long to push the locking pin up.

Thanks Doc, I like detailed explanations myself - so if i have to give them i try and make it nice and clear;-)

Good call on the loctite, i use a longer bolt as the other one went missing when my came apart and i noticed that mine was a little loose when i took it apart to take the pics for argh - so mine is loctited in now;-)
