Hi all,
How can I remove the seat from my 97 Bandit 1200s?
I did drop it in a parking lot (1-2 m/h), no big deal damage, but when I tried to start it again, it made a ratchet kind sound, then no power on the Neutral ligt, and I felt a little of smoke smell.
I want to check if there's something wrong with the battery cables or so.
Thank you all.
One more thing, do you have an idea about where can I get an Owners Manual for this bike?
Thank you all for reading, ride safe.

If it's like my 02 Bandit..theres a lock on the left side, around the passenger footpeg. turn it one way and it drops a helmet lock, turn it the other and the seat releases. No idea on an owners manual
