1 2 is 00911 1. Tongue 2. Keyhole Figure 2. Underside of 2-up seat INSTALLATION NOTE If installing the seat with a sissybar/backrest pad present, remove the backrest pad prior to seat installation. This will prevent damage to the pad and/or seat. Reinstall backrest pad after the seat is installed. 1. Models equipped with solo seats: See Figure 1. a. Remove the plastic plug (1) from the rear hole location in the fender (2). Save the plastic plug for installation. b. Move the seat retention nut (4) and lockwasher (5) from the middle location to the rear location, where the plug was just removed. As shown in the inset, a cable strap (6) can be used as an installation aid. Place the retention nut (5) over the cable strap so that the wide end of the nut rests on the eye of the cable strap. Thread the cable strap up under the fender, and through the fender hole. Pull up on the cable strap to hold the nut snug against the underside of the fender. c. With the rib of the retention nut (4) seated into the notch in the fender hole, slide the retension washer (5) into place from the rear. This will lock the retention nut in place. d. Reinstall the plastic plug in the fender hole in the middle location. NOTE The foam cushioning of the seat needs to be compressed as the seat is slid forward to engage the post on the frame when the seat is dropped into place. When properly installed, the front tongue on the underside of the seat should fit snugly in the groove at the fuel tank rear mounting location and the keyhole on the underside of the seat will lock the seat to the post on the frame. 2. All models: See Figure 2. a. Angle the front of the new seat into place so the tongue (1) engages the slot at the rear fuel tank mounting location. b. Push the seat forward and rotate the rear of the seat downward until the seat contacts the frame. Flex the seat slightly in the middle and slide the seat towards the rear so that the keyhole slot (2) on the seat bottom engages with the center seat post on the frame. 3. See Figure 3. Pull up on the center of the seat to verify that it is locked into place. (There will be a small amount of play, but the seat should only come up about a half an inch and then will be held firmly in place by the post on the underside of the seat.) If the seat is not firmly in place, repeat Step 2 until the seat is firmly in place. Reference the Owners Manual for further instruction on seat placement if needed
