Seat latch release mod

Description: Modification of the seat latch release cable

Since the bike was bought used, I`m not sure if the latch release is this way from the factory. Be as it may, in my bike you needed to open the left side cover with the ingnition key in order the pull the seat release cable. Annoying.

This is how my bike was when I got it

The actual mod to fix is stupid simple. All you need is some paracord and 3 minutes. I simply removed the pull ring and tied a 10” piece of paracord to the cable. Made a loop at the end for easo of use. Works like a charm and I no longer need to take the side cover off to remove the seat.

It hard to tell the piece of cord is there
