The seat of your Suzuki Marauder can undergo a great deal of wear and tear if you ride the motorcycle frequently. You can repair seams, cracks, rips and splits in a seat, but a time will come when you must remove and replace it---especially with older motorcycles. Removing the Marauder's seat only involves loosening a few screws; you can have the seat off in a matter of minutes.
Insert the Marauder's ignition key into the seat lock, and turn the key to unlock it.
Look carefully at the rear seat bolt, which sits just behind the rear seat. You need either a socket wrench or a screwdriver with an appropriate tip to remove this bolt, depending on whether you bought the motorcycle used and the previous owner customised the seat.
Pull the rear seat strap forward, then off the rear seat.
Pull the rear seat up and from the Marauder. After doing so, you will reveal two screws at the rear of the front seat. Remove these screws.
Lift up the front seat, and undo the tab near the full tank to detach the front seat.
