Seat latch cable is off

Hello all, i installed a Power commander V today and **** it wouldn't you know, I re hooked the cable to the latch but I must have forgotten to put the cable hold down into the mechanism. Plunked the seat on went for a spin come home to try a different MAP and my seat won’t release. Anyone with ideas to get to the latch? Or am i gonna have to go full Potato on it and buy a new seat?

Working good, i put my own map in. Lots of gurnt through 3rd gear now. No more face planting halfway through the power band.. Yoshi Slip on pipe makes it sound like a hog. Check engine light is on full time because they still donít put the 2017 version of the o2 sensor cheater.. they say its way back ordered. I might just add 39k ohm to it.

Over all pleased.. now its time to figure out abs/tq management delete.

Found ScottT's post helped me when my seat suddenly wouldn't come off.
1) take off the right side trim. Two screws and a push-pin rivet. You have to torque the seat some to get at the rivet.
2) pry & hold the seat and the plastic piece that caps the back of gas tank out of the way and push the latch to release the seat.

Thanks for posting the pictures, hopefully never have to use them but great to have them as a reference for all.

What was the issue in your case? Did the cable come out of its holder or something?
