How do you remove the riders seat from a 99 GSXR 750? From looking at it I would say you have to remove the side panels first....but that seems like such a pain in the ass....

pull the padding upwards and forwards at each corner of the rear of the seat.

under is a couple of allen bolts (8mm?). Undo.

a handy mod is to replace them with quick release pins.

Anybody know where to get quick-release pins and what they would cost?

I wanted to do that to mine. My only hang up was that I didn't want someone to have quick access to the brain and battery. Plus, my insert threads just spin around and around when I try to put the bolts back in which kind makes me want to put the pins in, BUT I have some stuff at work where I can replace the inserts. Has anyone else had this worry about the accessibility?

never thought of it like that, especially as shops all seem to mount alarms under the seat. but, if the scum are looking under that seat, there gonna get under there anyway, with kwik pins or allen bolts.

never heard of the thread inserts spinning like that though.

Mine started to spin, I tried glue, and brute force, but they still spun.

My answer is a couple of ling hitch pins, and a couple of pins...

I drilled out the thread, and through the bottom of the sumframe, pushed a pin through, and secured it with a pin pin - so that it will not "drop".

The seat sits onto the pins, and a pin then holds it it place - I'll take some pics at the weekend to explain.

Its good because its really hard to remove the seat without long nose pliers


Took a lot of patience to learn how to put the seat on, and slip the pins in, but once you've done it a couple of times, its not too bad.

I had the spinning thread as well only on one side. Had to get a mate with a welder to put a spot on it for me. Had him do the other just in case. Pain in the arse but now it should be fixed. I'd be interested in seeing the pins pics. Looked at another post and a company charging a load of money for a couple of pins??????
