    Just bought a 2013 650r! But I can't get the rear seat to lock

    Hello all, just signed up after buying a 2013 ninja 650r with 1700 miles. I got it home and noticed the rear seat just popped right off. The guy I bought it from used the key to get it off, and it seemed like it popped back on when he re-attached it but now no matter how hard I try the seat pops right off. I'm attaching a video. You can kind of hear it click, and yes I'm clipping the back hook in the slot. Any ideas?

    The latch is underneath slot pointed at with blue arrow. See if something is binding it. It looks like your tool bag may be in the way.

    So after playing with it in the rain for 15 minutes, i ended up removing the front seat and it was able to lock in WITHOUT the front seat on. So i put the front seat back on and tried again and after pushing as hard as i can, it locked in. Not sure if the front seat wasnt push all the way up enough before or what but after much fighting with it, seems to be all set. thanks for the help. Also i moved the tool kit just in case but i dont think that was it.

    So my seat locked but it appears now my key wont turn to unlock the rear seat and I dont want to break it. I tried twisting the key pretty hard while pulling up on the seat at the same time. Seems to be stuck, any ideas?

    trying pushing the seat down while turning the key. That's strange you're having all these issues. Did the bike sit outside a lot? If that were my bike, I'd be spraying WD-40 in the seat locking mechanisms and on and around the keyhole.

    I got it.. had to have somebody sit on it, I guess it wasn't clicked in all the way so it was stuck? Not sure but I took it off and put it back on a few times and it seems good now.
