  1. eyy guys like the topic says how do i remove the seat off a 1991 yamaha xv1100? my mate just bought one and needs to remove the seat to put his saddle bags on. Anyone know how?

    Thanks guys

  2. Anyone want to move this to the cruiser forum?

    Also, look at the seat. Is it key operated? does it require bolt removal? If there's no key hole, you may need to remove the side panels to access the seat bolts. Are there easily removable side panels?
  3. on either side of the seat at the tank-end, there should be an allen style bolt that you undo. once it's removed lift the seat up at the tank end, and pull towards the tank to remove it

    assuming it's similar to an xv750, that is :)
