Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

Is it possible? It's a BITCH to close (have to slam it), and it needs too much force to open it with the key, and it's bending the key every time I try to open it. Is it possible to height-adjust these seats, or am I going to have to resort to filing some of the metal off the loop on the bottom of the seat?

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

You can probably use washers to position it more accurately.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

I cut out the lock, the loop, and the massive mount for the loop... now just have a bungy cord to pull it flat.... more storage, way more flush placement of the seat, and everyone assumes you have a lock... as if that POS lock would slow them down more than 10 seconds anyway lol.

Yep, no latch or spring on mine.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

Has it got a grab or grab rail/rack combined. If not it might of have once and the brackets have been left fitted which will course it to be tight. I push down on the rear seat and operate the key at the same time and it works fine.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

It's got a Ventura rack on it. Same as this one: https://www.fireblades.org/forums/for...tem-929-a.html

Wouldn't have thought it'd affect the seat to be honest.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

If your not concerned with having a locking system! remove the locking loop then remove pillion seat & reverse the spring so it catches on the helmet locking tang,this will cause the pillion seat snap down.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

Not a bad idea with the spring - thanks !! Will debate it, as having a decent amount of space under the seat to store stuff is really nice, so having a lock is preferable.

Re: Adjusting the passenger seat on 929

After a bit of browsing, I think this may be the way to go.

Would also stop me wanting to walk away from the bike with the key in the back of it
