    Sounds like a stupid question, but I cannot figure out how to remove teh seat on my Electra glide CVO to install a battery tender.

    Should be covered in the owner's manual. If you don't have that:

    1. Unscrew the knurled bolt behind the seat holding the rear portion to the fender.

    2. Slide the seat backwards to get the flange loose from under the gas tank.

    3. Remove seat.

    This is how it works on my FLHX so yours should be the same unless Ultras are different.

    I think he is having problems with the cross over strap of the seat maybe?

    That's possible. If you just disconnect one end by removing the bolt the strap is out of the way then.

    Duh - thanks for adding that! I took my strap off so I totally forgot about that step.
