  1. hey so i just bought my first bike. a 1983 honda vt250f. its a stupid question but how do u take off the seat? there is no key to open it. there is a key hole but thats for the helmet lock. there are allen keys on it but i doubt u need that to open it everytime?

    please reply.

    thanks very much!

  2. If you don't have an owner's handbook, ask the person/store you bought it off.

    Not sure if it's the same as a CB250 but on that there is a small lever behind the helmet locking device. Use the key in the helmet lock and pull down the lever and slide the seat backwards and up.
  3. Yep. Looks the same as a CB250.
