For the front you yank the 2 side covers off. They just pull off. Then you will have 2 bolts you will have to remove to get it off. For the back, you have to take off the 2 fake struts and remove 2 bolts on each side. Both are pretty easy.

Thanks bud , assuming the two bolts for the front seat are in the back part of the seat? I didn't notice the bolts when I looked at how to do it .

That is correct. They are at the back end of the seat and are Allen bolts. The first time I took mine off, they were super tight. I ended up using a socket wrench with an Allen head socket on it.

For what it's worth. I no longer bother to bolt the seats down on any of my Vic's. They stay there just fine and work just fine with the rider backrest. It's nice to just lift it off as needed rather than pulling the side covers and bolts.

On the one KP it leaves a little gap between the seat and tank. I don't see this as a bad thing personally but some might.

Yeah I think that the process for removing the seat is super easy. Coming from a Harley where IMO it was a pain in the ass. The guys at Vic nailed it with the brackets on the rear pillion. Love it !!!

Are you being sarcastic? To remove a 2 up seat from a Harley you just take out one bolt on the back fender. To do the same thing on a Kingpin you need to remove both side covers and both strut covers then remove 4 bolts.

Same here Bob, my last five bikes have had velcro down the frame rails and seat. Just rip it off.

Also made a new seat.
