How do I remove the seat?

I all
I have a 1986 interstate and I can't figure out how to remove the seat!

Is it the allen key that is under the passenger seat?

First remove both saddlebag tops.
You'll see allen bolts on each side just under the seat.
After you remove those, pull up on the back and slide it back to disengage it from the hook at the front.

Did your typo 1986 instead of 1996 or viseversa?, 96 is the bolts on the passenger handholds.
