    Not here. Good luck resolving the issue!
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    I can't recall anyone esle having had this problem.

    Have you managed to undo the lock to release the seat  ?

    It sounds like either part of the lock barrrel casting has broken,
    or something has become detached at the base of the lock barrel,
    allowing the lock to spin in the cylinder.

    If you haven't managed to undo the lock, you might be able to fish around
    with a length of hooked stiff wire - to see if the lock mechanism can be accessed
    to release the latch, but I've never tried that and don't know if it would be possible.

    The attached Image shows the lock barrel ( and the end of the casting that may have broken off ),
    plus the Seat Lock assembly ( Item 7 ) and the Seat latch ( Item 8 )
    to give you an idea of what you are "fishing" for !

    Keep us updated !  :169:

    Hi,

    Thank you for response.

    Status
    With use of a little force I have been able to remove the front driver seat.. The rear passenger seat is locked. To my understanding it is not possible to remove it with out damaging the seat locking mechanism...

    The only way to unlock the rear seat is, as I see it, to manually manage to press or unhook the locking mekanisme with "a smart tool" under the seat.. The challenge is to figure out where to press or hook for a manual releasing of the locking mekanisme...

    There are not many Trophy 1200 around where I live in Stavanger Norway... A picture of the locking mechanism will be of great help. If any one of you are able to take a picture and... do some investigation if it is at all possible to manually unlock the lock.

    Hi  Odd Bjørn Meling,

    I popped into my garage and took these pictures.  But it was difficult to show how it worked so did a video on YouTube here:

    https://youtu.be/uEzuqrElMbI

    It looks to me the only option is to come in from underneath.  Back wheel off, splash guard plastic off and I think you will be able to see the bar to pull back releasing the catch.  I do find that downward pressure on the rear seat helps relieve the pressure on the lock mechanism to enable it to run back.

    Hope this helps in you solution of the issue.

    Love, light and kindness,

    Dave

    Hi

    Thanks for pictures and video.
    It will not be easy to manage to press the unlocking mechanism   :155:. Possibly from the right side with a screwdriver? But hitting the right spot is not straightforward.  :033: I will do my best  :002:

    Hi, status, Problem solved!!  :046:

    I managed to loosen / dismantle the rear "handlebar" (If that what it is called in English), and that process loosened the mechanism and the locked rear seat.

    (And of course listening to old episode of Car Talk with Click and Clack helps :008:)

    I have posted three videos

    About the "faulty Lock", I am not quite sure if this is a question about poor engineering or if there is something missing / lost on the locking mechanism on my TTSE (?)

    Thank you for all Your support in this matter!! :152:

    Good to see you're back i business. Let us know if you have future problems.
