How to Remove the Seat on a Honda CB250

Updated February 28, 2017

Tears, cracks and rips on your motorcycle seat are the result of normal wear and tear from the elements and from everyday use. You may choose to remove the seat from your Honda CB250 to replace it with a new one, or you may just want access to the storage unit located beneath the seat. In either event, the seat was designed for easy removal.

Position the key in the ignition of your Honda, but do not turn the engine on at the time. You need the key in position to release the seat.

Look in front of the rear turn signal on the gear lever side of your Honda C250. You will find the locking mechanism for your helmet. This looks like a loop with a lock next to it.

Grab the key that is attached to this helmet locking area and turn it. As you do, this pushes the small lever next to it forward. This causes the seat to unlock.

Continue to hold that lever down as you grab the passenger strap that is on the back of the seat and give it a good pull. The seat should break free from its position. Release the lever once you have pulled the seat off.

Remove the key from the ignition after you have removed the seat.

Look under the seat when you are installing a new one to be sure the front end is facing forward. Position the driver's end in first, and then push the passenger end down to lock it into place.
