Seat opening problem

I cannot open my seat. It was open last time a week ago, today nothing happens when I turn the key. Anyone had similar problem?  :440:

Going back some time ago there was a post about the screws securing the lock being loose. That in turn would cause a problem removing the seat. I checked mine at the time and they were loose. Re tightened with a drop of loctite.

This obviously isn't going to help you at the mo. All I'd suggest is put a bit of weight on the seat to easy any pull on the locking pin and keep trying. Good luck.

I had this, the screws securing the lock were loose (actually, they were gone...) and I got the seat away by pressing the front of the saddle down and back... It took time and effort to open... Hope that you'll manage it!!

I had the same problem spent all day trying to get it open. took it to dealers honda newcastle they fixed it under warranty. It took them a couple of hours to strip the back end down and put it back together.
