How to Remove a Seat in a 2000 Suzuki Intruder

by Jeremy Holt

The Suzuki Intruder is a popular V-twin cruiser that has been in production since 1987. It has a characteristic muscular, chopper-like appearance and is known for having the longest wheelbase in motorcycling (66.9 inches). The seat is only 27.6 inches off the ground, but at a generous 16 inches wide, it is built for comfort. Removing the seat is a straightforward maintenance task you can perform quickly and easily.
