I have decided to remove the softtouch passenger backrest and put it on the new bike i have bought. I searched the forums on removing it but found no directions as to how to do it. I did read that the nuts came loose and the bolts simply spun in place. Its not of the most importance that this be done and I do not want it to lead to more problems. If I really decide to exchange them, how is it done?

Todays projects done are exchanged the battery, moved heated gear harness to new bike, did a cannisterectomy and exchanged the passenger seats while they were off. This still leaves the front tire exchange, motolight exchange, removal of Garmin 550 harness from 01. The 03 had all the fluids and filter changed less than 500 miles ago so thats good to go.

Larry,
Last week I removed both seats, back rest and my after market passenger arm rests so I could ship them out for my new Kontour Seat. The back rest is only held on by four short bolts, no washers or nuts. Open the trunk and you'll see them. Easy to do. If I can do it anyone can.

Larry I am looking for a thread on how to remove my 05 lt seats can you help. I found the thread on how to remove the heated seat wire but not how to actually remove both seats.
Thanks Steve

and when the front seat is raised, the rear seat is held by the two bolts on either side.
