How do I remove the seat?

I am trying to track down the trailer wiring harness. it looks like it goes under the seat but I am not sure how to remove the seat. I do not want to do any damage.My trailer may also have some problems, but I want to check out the source first.

Thanks in advance!............Lance


It is easiest to remove the seat when the saddlebags and travel trunk have been taken off, which (luckily) takes only a minute or so. There is a bolt on each side that holds the seat down on each side of the passenger. Once these bolts have been removed, the seat can be simply lifted off of the Venture.
I believe that the bolts are either 10mm or 12mm, but the garage is cold and dark right now (it is below freezing outside), so I hope that this works out for Lance. I only took the seat off once (to install an aftermarket seat), and I did not find the bolts till after I decided to remove the saddlebags...........Scott MacMartin

There are two (2) bolts just above the forward edge of the saddle bags, just afty I believe of the downward part of the hand hold. Remove them 12 or 14 MM and pull the seat up and to the rear. All the wires run along the frame/fender braces to the rear. See my post on the venture page for the wiring sequence.............Hank Yerger
