Maybe a stupid question, but I'm trying to get to me battery on my 66 R50/2 and I can't seem to figure out how to remove the Denfeld solo seat. Any Help?

I don't remove my solo seat.

I don't remove my solo seat. Unhook the battery leads. Remove the air cleaner...don't really need to but it helps. Remove the rubber strap on the battery. Slide the battery up and tilt towards the back, sliding between the seat and the fender.

Thanks, but just in case do you know how to remove the seat for future references?

Look under the rubber cover.

Look under the rubber cover. There are two nuts along the back edge and there's another nut hidden a bit up near the nose of the seat. These three nuts will let the rubber seat come off. There's a t-frame still attached. It can't be removed until you take the tank off. You can see a few nuts/bolts attaching the t-frame to the silent block. The silent block is held with another couple of nuts/bolts to a plate welded to the frame.

Solo seat removal

Hi,

This diagram should help.

Item #7 (Saddle mount) is under the tank.

Hope this helps.
