Gpz1100b1 seat lock

#1 PostAuthor: scott » Thu Mar 28, 2019 12:29 pm

Guys, my Gpz1100b1 has a seat lock on the left hand side of the bike. Should there be one on the right hand side as well?? If not, what should be on the right hand side? I have seen a picture of a Gpz/J/R with a seat lock on the right hand side, so a bit more confused than normal. Any answers??

From memory, the only seat lock where you put the key in is on the left. This allows removal of the seat, but also operates both helmet locks (one each side). I'll have to check when I get home this evening.

My bad (memory !)
Yes, the right side helmet lock does need a key, and bolts on just behind the shock mount.

Well, I found the seat lock, which was apparently hens teeth. I’m sure I’ll find one eventually.
