Many of the basic maintenance routines required by a Honda FourTrax series all-terrain vehicle (ATV) involves the removal of the ATV's seat. While removing the seat is not difficult, the absence of a readily available seat latch on the side of the ATV can make the task appear more complicated than it is. A quick search under the plastic fender will reveal the missing latch, allowing the seat to be removed with a minimal amount of fuss.
Reach under the left side of the rear fender to locate the seat latch on the ATV's frame.
Lift the seat latch upward to unlock the seat.
Lift the rear of the seat upward and pull it away from the ATV's gas tank. Set the seat aside.
Tips & Warnings
- Some FourTrax models, such as the TRX400EX, use a one-piece seat and rear fender assembly. The removal procedure is identical to the method shown above.
