Oh Luigi. May locusts infest your genitals.

Now I can't get the seat off.

Tips, tricks, techniques please.

I have looked at mine and it looks like it would be hard to reach the seat catch arm from behind as the seat drops down over that black plastic housing covering the operating arm.   However the seat catch arm is pulled by the cable from the left so if you push away the mesh plate over the RIGHT fake air vent you might be able to push it open with a screwdriver?

Push the mesh plate away where it's fixing posts are at the front and rear top and bottom - it is held by spring washers over the plastic posts - even if they break off you could glue it back in place

(1) position of seat catch arm

(2) distance from RIGHT rear air vent to back of seat catch arm & the right angle to push

I previoiusly posted a picture showing a screwdriver in pushing position but it was wrong!  The catch arm will arc across then forwards so you need to push it from as far back as possible to keep purchase on it

I hope that works

I suppose you’ve already tried putting your weight on the back of the seat while turning the key? That’s what I always have to do to pop it loose.

So I got on the pillion and bounced up and down a few times.

Never heard anything, felt anything, and…worked like a charm.

Thank you.

Turn the key and then a couple of hammer fists to the pillion area. You want to "pop" it real quick.
