1999 Virago 1100 Seat Removal (SOLVED)

PostAuthor: rlbates60 » Tue May 21, 2019 1:14 pm

I purchased this really clean low mileage bike to commute to and from work. It has a Mustang seat that I cannot figure out how to remove. All help appreciated.

Two bolts towards the front and slides out of the holder at the rear. The left bolt also holds upper left portion of sub tank. Be aware, there's also a spacer on the left side bolt that could fall down when you remove the bolt.

Glad you got the information you needed. It is not necessary to make more than one post per subject as they all rotate thru the new posts page and that is what most of us watch... I deleted your duplicate post. :VTF:

Be careful as the Mustang front mounts are steel and will ruin the paint on your fuel tank if you bump into it during removal or installation. The stock Virago seat mounts are plastic.
