    Quick release seat

    I want to eliminate the need for tools to remove seat so I can connect an air compressor to battery. Found an old thread while searching for quick release seat and LT mentioned using Velcro. That sounds like a good idea. Is your Velcro still working for you LT? Did you use adhesive other than the sticky back on the Velcro? Would be glad to hear about other options for quick battery access. Thanks

    Whew! I thought you were referring to a quick seat release to get your butt out of the saddle more quickly.

    Yep, still using it and it's been on there 3 or 4 years now. I think one piece came loose a little bit and I then glued it down. I just put pieces on the crossmembers under the seat. I just start at the back of the seat and kind of peel it off. I have been real happy with it.

    Note: if you trailer your bike to where you are riding, you may want to throw a bungee cord over the seat. I remember one member lost his seat on the way to his destination...

    Mule Nuts! What an idea! Thought it was such a pain to get the seat off every time I wanted to fiddle with something.

    LTs velcro method works great! It's very secure, and can't imagine the seat coming loose by accident.

    I've also thought about trying posts and rubber grommets (like the ones used to attach the body plastic to the fuel tank) in place of the threaded seat studs.
    Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!
