probably the simplest of questions:
What tools do I need to remove the seat:
Do I need a TorQ bit to remove the seat? OR just regular spanner/socket for the 2 nuts underneath?
If I need a torQ bit, then what size?

Thanks

It's a Torx T50 bit that you'll need for the 3 screws at the front of the tongue; one that fits onto your 1/2 inch drive ratchet is best.
A 17mm goose-neck ring spanner is perfect for the 2 nuts to adjust or remove the seat without removing the tongue completely.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice Mike! The Owners Manual does not specify the size needed for the seat adjustment screws so your help was great! I purchased a T50 today and adjusted my seat and the handlebars. Great!

Isn't there a little seat wrench behind one of the side covers?...I could be thinking of a diff bike, but thought there was one...
There is a torx tool behind the cover, but its small, something like a T20 or T25. I think its meant for accessing the air filters. Its far too small for the seat.

Having taken my seat off yesterday, I can confirm it's a T50 Torx (thanks Zanetti) for the 3 torx bolts and a 17mm socket for the bolts underneath.


Technically, it's just the 17mm socket, but there wasn't enough space to get the socket on with the seat still in place.

I have a Corbin seat on order. Anyone know what size are the four little screws on the seat pan... torx or hex? Size? Hanks!
