Help! Can't open Seat Storage/Trunk - Ninja 500R
Yesterday I put a cd in the seat storage area and when I arrived at my destination, I couldn't take out the seat! I have a 2000 Ninja 500R and I just cannot get the seat off...I didn't want to break the key so I gave up after numerous tries. Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestion how to fix this? Man, if I get pulled over I would not be able to show the cop my papers
I have a feeling the cd moved while the bike was in motion and now is jamming against the mechanism to open the seat.
Please help!!! Thanks in advance!
Try pushing the seat down while turning the key to relieve some pressure.
lean the bike from side to side to try to dislodge the cd. might have to shake it as well.
as for your papers, put them on your person while riding, not the bike. if it is ever stolen, your papers are still with you.
your jacket has a nice pocket in the spine for just such a thing. and they stay dry there on wet days even.
I will try that after work.
Thanks for the suggestion on the papers too. I keep the original at home. The one on the bike is a copy.

just jump on the seat until you hear the jewl case crack, then you know it's free!
