You probably didn't find on the forum because its pretty remedial stuff.

here we go:

First, remove the side cover (1 each side). Second,locate the allen head bolt directly under the seat (1 each side). Third, remove bolts by inserting allen wrench into head of bolt and turning wrench to the left. Finally, lift seat off of bike.

Next lesson: How to start you bike.

all kidding aside, the only stupid question is the one not asked.

+1, they will come in handy, the bolts are tucked up there and a little hard to see. just shine a light above the battery area and you will see the one, the other is same area on other side.

he is obviously serious or he wouldn't have asked. We must remember that some are not as wrench-friendly as others....all you do is remove the two fender struts. Underneath that you will see that it is held on by four more allen bolts. Remove the bolts and there you go. Remember, some people don't even change their own oil.
