Remove the G5 seat for dummies
« on: August 11, 2010, 01:37:48 AM »
OK I give up.
How do you get the damn thing off?
I've seen it somewhere on this forum, but can't find it back.
I remember "undo the 4 bolts", but I hesitate to take the shocks out  ???
Feels like "take everything off the bike until only the seat is left..."  ::)

On the positive side, I noticed that the bike seems to be pre-wired for a trickle charger. Now THAT's a nice detail  ;D

Appreciate your help

There are 4 bolts - 2 on left and 2 on right side, near the end of rear seat.  These are the same bolts that are used to attach horizontal bar of seat back rest.  You are right that you do NOT need to take the shocks out.  They bolt head is 10 mm size.  The front bolt threads in the frame but the rear bolt has a nut on the other side.

Here are the links with pictures of seat back rest attachment.  May be you already know that you can right click on the picture and then open in New Tab to see a big version in more details -

Mine came with a charger socket pre-wired to the battery as well,  I thought that was cool.
Any other Enfields in New England?

Thank your gREat DEALER for that set up! I used to do that as well .... it's MUCH easier to "top off" the battery when you don't have to take parts off and "dig" to get to it ......
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

Yup, the dealer told me that they set them up that way.  The Dealer I bought mine from has hundreds of bikes in stock, although the Enfield and Benelli are the only new Marks they carry, the sell primarily used bikes.

They pre-service every bike that comes in ,it is probably easier to install the connector and rotate the charging station then to have to jump start a bike when a customer wants one.

They move a lot of Bikes,  They sold 105 Bikes in June!.
