I have a 2006 Burgman and I can't get the seat to open when I push the key in and turn it to the left. How can I get the seat open? Help!!

Push in and turn it to the right.

Give the back of the seat a whack down with you fist then turn the key. That will sometimes work. If it doesn't then push down hard on the back of the seat while you turn the key. If neither of those things work then you have bigger problems.

Jetfixer is right, I didn't catch you said you turned it to the left. If turning it to the right doesn't work then see above.

Thank you JetFixer for the advice and it did work every time.
Turning it to the left locks the steering, does it do anything else?

If you go too far to the left,
it turns on the Parking Lights,
& runs down your battery.

:withstupid:I have NEVER done that. ;) My 67 Honda 305 Superhawk did the same thing. :rolleyes:

I got in the habit of locking the steering and walking behind the bike, looking while running my hand across her rump. :p

You may want to lube the cable or do the "Emergency trunk release" mod.

If you push all the way in AND hold it there while turning it to the left it will ONLY let you lock the fork. If you let the key come back out AFTER you start turning it to the left it will let you lock the fork AND turn on the parking lights. I just make sure to keep the key pushed in and have never had a problem. This is probably in the manual but who reads those.

OP successful in getting that seat open? Even if so, then know that there is a method whereby if you really get stuck and must get the seat open you can. Remove the engine inspection cover from the central hump is the key... I know it saved my bacon on more than one occasion. Buffalo in post 4 gives some solid advice...

The trunk latch is cable operated.....
nothing electrical about it.
The cable is similar to the hand-brake
cables on a bicycle...an outer sleeve,
with an inner core...turning the ignition
key results in a pulling-action on the
cable core, releasing the seat latch.

...or have someone lean heavily on the seat directly above
the latch, while you turn the key. Some times a good smack
on the seat above the latch just before you turn the key will
be enough.
