Must have been in a hurry after charging the battery, as I have have not put the seat on properly and now I don't know how to get it back off to put it on correctly. Inserting the key and trying to turn it, doesn't turn it and I think the key may just break off in the keyhole if I as extreme pressure.
Any suggestions? I've attached a photo. FZ1 2006 Seat.JPGFZ1 2006 Seat.JPG

Try pushing the back of the seat. Down and in while turning the key. The latch mechanism is at the rear . If it's not lined up correctly the key won't turn. If you can give it a bit of pressure down at the very rear and at the same time push forward from the rear aswell.

I did the same thing when I got my fz. That's how I got around it. However there should be a bar or cable operating the mechanism. If you can get to it use it instead of key
