    seat and panniers

    Good day,
    New member here from Ontario, Canada.
    I just picked up a 2018 with spoked wheels, yesterday and have so far ridden it a grand total of 200 km. The multi will be my travel bike, taking over duties for a 2010 KTM SMT990. I also have an old 2001 monter 900 cromo as a back road ripper.

    Anyhow, while I've owned a few modern Ducatis, I don't know a great deal about the Multi 950 yet. I've been poking around this site for the last few days and the 950 thread on ADVrider and I'm sure it will take me a little while to become familiar with the quirks of the bike.

    The previous owner misplaced the manual so I don't have one. So the first embarrassing issue I haven't been able to figure out yet, how to do take the panniers and seat off? I noticed a key slot under the seat frame and I assume I that's part of it.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    Welcome,

    As for removing panniers, insert key into lock on the pannier, lift the outer handle that sits around the catch that opens the pannier up & slide the whole pannier towards the back of the bike, depending on how frequently they have been removed they may be a little tight & awkward.

    As for the seat, insert the key in the lock below the seat, which will release the pillion seat, slide pillion seat forward to remove & then remove the large metal hex fitting on each side of the riders seat, lift the rear of the riders seat first & lift off.

    Thanks very much for the reply, I did figure both out after fussing around for awhile.

    The panniers came off super simple and the seats were fairly easy as well.


    I've spent the last few days out riding and I'm actually pleasantly surprised how well the Bridgestone battlax AX 41 tires handle on the road. They do make a bit of noise but not terrible. I also went hunting for some dirt roads and they were excellent on fresh graded gravel. I was planning on swapping them out for scorpion trail II's but I may just wait until I wear them out first.
