    new owner here. Can someone help with how I can remove the seat? I’ve looked through YouTube and the forum but can’t seem to get it to work on my bike. Pics of the situation are attached. Thanks

    @NickRocket , Welcome to the site.

    I'm sure you can appreciate, people are happier helping people who invested a little effort in helping folks get to know you.

    For that, we have a forum, appropriately labeled, "Introduce Yourself !!", and suggest you go there, and . . . well . . . you know . . . introduce yourself. Something about your riding experience, how you came to choose the Rocket, where you got it, miles on it, any mods, and anything else you'd care to share.

    I take it you don't have the owners manual ?

    The stock seat on the Touring is secured with three hex bolts: 6mm socket to either side toward the rear of the rider's seat, and a single 5mm socket bolt securing a tab directly behind the pillion seat.

    Open the panniers, look under the seat, you will see allen head bolts, remove them, remove bolt at rear of seat, lift off. I think your key is in the lock for the removable sissy bar/backrest. You may want to remove the backrest first.

    You have to open panniers to see the bolts on the sides, I just remove them. You don't need to remove backrest to remove the seat. A ball head Allen key makes removal of bolt at rear if seat easier.
