How to Remove the Seat From a Suzuki Katana 750

Updated February 21, 2017

Like many motorcycles, the Suzuki 750 Katana utilises the space underneath the seat for wiring and the battery. To tinker with wiring or replace the battery of the Katana, you must first remove the seat. You may wish to remove the seat to replace or repair it. Some motorcycle users purchase a custom seat for extra comfort or style. You can remove the seat of the Suzuki 750 Katana in a few minutes with minimal equipment.

Move the motorcycle to a safe, well-lit, level location such as a garage or car park. Extend the kickstand to keep the motorcycle from rolling.

Locate the two bolts on the side of the seat. These bolts are located near the front of the seat. Typically, there is one bolt on the right side and one bolt on the left side. However, the location may vary depending on the year of the motorcycle.

Unscrew these bolts using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a hex-head socket. Set them aside.

Set your hands on the front of the seat and lift it upwards. Once the seat makes a 45-degree angle with the motorcycle frame, pull the seat forward until the rear tab of the seat unlocks.
