    How do you take the seat (factory) off so I can mount a back support for the driver on a softail. I just bought a 2006 and can't seem to figure this out.

    Do you have a rear seat pillion on your rear fender?

    Id so, then you have to remove the screw on the back of that which goes into the rear fender.

    Then pull off the rear pillion.

    Then the two screws holding your seat in will be exposed.

    Highly recommend getting the Service Manual for your bike. Hundreds of simple questions like this have their answers revealed in this magical book!

    The owners manual covers this topic very nicely also.
