Pillion Seat lock R1

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by lockie, Jul 29, 2012.

  1. So got my GYTR slip ons fitted to my '12 R1 Saturday. Take the bike out for a ride today and go to remove the pillion seat bit the stupid thing is stuck. Key goes in and turns, but it doesn't feel like its actually moving the lock mechanism... I'm guessing they had the seat off to get to a bolt or two when installing the slip ons but now I can't get it open... It looks to be fitted properly (ie. not jammed on incorrectly). Any suggestions?

  2. You tried pushing down on the seat whilst turning the key??
  3. Yea have given it a good push/shove - the seat seems to be on properly, not jammed or anything like that. Going to head back to the shop on the weekend so they can sort it out.
