So how do I remove the stock seat off a 2016 Hammer S? The owners manual, which covers several different models, does not cover the Hammer on the seat removal page (page 72). Nothing on YT either. Maybe a single bolt underneath the rear fender, but I'd rather not guess. I want to hook-up my charging pigtail and the seat pan is right on top of the positive battery post.

Also the passenger cowl...just pull straight up to remove, or is there a process there too? Thanks.

Sorry, but no $5 for you...that is not a Hammer and I don't have those bolts. Also I saw that video prior to posting this thread. So...question still stands. Like I mentioned I really don't want to remove bolts/hardware unless its necessary, so really would like to know the exact procedure.

Do you have a solo seat?

This seat looks like it screws in behind the drivers pan and only hooks in the front of the saddle. If you have the solo seat I bet you need to remove the back panel to expose the bolts.

So it appears I was correct.....meaning my Google fee still applies with the added eBay fee being that's where I found the pics.

That will be $7.50 please.

Lol!

LOL...I don't think so. But yeah the second post with photos were correct. Never would have thought that the bolts go through the seat surface itself and are under the cowl section. I don't understand why that's not covered in the manual. BTW...the Hammer doesn't have a solo seat...rather it has a rider/passenger seat in which the passenger section is covered with a removable cowl.

I didn't realize about the seat. That got me thinking what you would do with the cover if you pick up a rider.

I ran across this and thought it was pretty cool.

Looks better with the rear cowl mounted on the small windshield.

I agree.

I doubt if I had a Hammer I would ever have a need for it. I've never picked up a unplanned rider on my Vision so I don't see me picking one up on a Hammer.

I just thought it was interesting.

Translation...the windscreen looks horrible with those naked grommet holes.
If the plate is metal I would have to get a magnet graphic to keep on the plate when my rear panel isn't attached. Then when I need to attach it I could stick the magnet to the tank.

Or,

A custom paint job on the plate that hides the holes in the design.


Things are getting complicated. I think I'll just stick to Visions.
