Mine a lil too but a lil wiggle of the key gets it loose
I know...I thought it a poor location tooMy dealer couldn't get it out for five minutes at delivery time. Embarassing. Now, I have to wiggle (hard) two to three minutes... I don't want to break the key off under there. Seems like a very poor design. What with the dirt and mud under the fender - why put a lockset there?
The thought of a pull cable hidden from view has been on my mind tooI think there was a lot of oversight on "where does mud really get flung?" on this bike. I'm considering trying to retrofit my scrambler with some other way to release the seat. Push button or pull cable. I'm only storing my sunglasses under the seat anyway.
