Taking the seat off a CB250

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Stiffman, Nov 13, 2007.

  1. I've got a '98 CB250, and i'm trying to work out how to get the seat off it so I can give it a bit of a clean & service, and well, just so i know how to get the seat off.

    and anything else anyone can tell me about the bike would be good too. I found a service manual online for a much older version of the bike, so i'm not too sure how useful that will be of me.

  2. does the helmet lock twist the opposite direction?

    some bikes you need a screw drive or spanner.
  3. the service manual should still be relevant. There weren't too many major mechanical revisions of the old CB.

    I think it's a helmet lock that turns both ways. lift the back of the seat up
  4. Ah, cool, I did see the helmet lock,
    i'll have a closer look later, thanks
  5. Turn key in helmet lock until it opens, behind it there is a small lever, pull this down. Then slide seat back and up and VOILA! Boot space.

    Just make sure it locks back in place properly when you've finished. It should give a satisfying click - although I could just be easily pleased.

    That's where your fuse box is too should you ever need it.
  6. awesome.
    I've been too lazy to have a look yet. maybe this arvo I will
