How the heck do you take the seat off of a F1 Hurricane?
I haven't been one her for a few weeks and the bike is turning over but I think I need a jump to get it over to the Honda place. Isn't the battery under the seat? I'm looking for clips...grommets SOMETHING to turn to release the thing...but I see nada...just the stuff holding the side fender on...Help! Undecided

Thanks so much!

I got the two fairings off and the seat as well....what a mess it is under there!  At some point someone added those little lights under the fairings that glow in different colors. Miles of electrical wire all bunched up in the little battery box. This is going to be fun.   Undecided

wooooo before u hurt ur baby read this.. Only jump your bike with another bike... IF this isnt an option and you have to jump it from a car, use the longest and cheepest jumper cables u have and dont have the vehicle on.. NEVER use a jumper pack trust me you will be replacing a stator as i learned the HARD way on that LOL

A jumper pack messed up your stator Gags?  I know jumping with a car running will cause the regulator rectifier to burn up, but if it is not running or is a battery pack it should just add an additional source of power for the electrical system to use.  I have used a jumper pack before.

yea it did rrsco, and ive used on countless times and never had a prob before, but i put it on the rebel and it blew it into pieces, when i brought it to a local used bike parts store the guy said "dont tell me you put a jumper pack on that" so needless to say i walked out with my tail between my legs.. He says he sees it all the time.. But like ive said ive prob jumped 50 bikes with one one problem

hmmm.....


I left the key on a few weeks back and ran down my battery. I had to jump it like three or four times in the course of two days and it was fine... At first i thought the battery was dead and not holding a charge but once i got her up and running long enough for the bike to recharge the battery she is fine..

and i used my 2000 Chevy Blazer (while running) to jump my bike.... Granted my jumper cables are super cheapos and like 15 feet long to boot but yet and still, no probs from the jump....

i will be more cautious in the future....
