I cant put my seat back on, HELP!!!

Postby crimsonwing » Tue Mar 22, 2016 4:17 pm



Hello all, New owner of an 84 interstate, I took the seat off to put a new seat cover on but now it wont go back on. I know there is a lever that allows you to slide the seat back and forth freely but when I put the seat on I can't even access the lever because the seat covers it. I don't get it!! I've been riding around with a loose seat and i'm afraid it will get stolen soon,please help!!

if it uses an allen wrench, get a long one like I have. Put it in the bolt head, long end and start screwin. I assume the new cover is a good tight fit. And you can roll the side up a bite to see? i dont know im lost for words. Got a picture?

hey there, thanks so much for your reply. i actually figured it out though, it turns out you can reach the lever from the fuel tank door! so happy. But now i ran out of gas on the highway and my bike wont start anymore :( now I gotta make another post about that
