Remove the seat from your '99-'02 SV650 to gain access to your fuse box, tank hinge bolts and various other electrical connections.
If you have frame covers below your seat, remove them by removing the 4 mm allen bolts holding them on. Use a 4 mm allen wrench to turn the screws counter-clockwise until they come off.
Once the frame covers are off, remove the 4 mm allen seat bolts on both sides of the seat. Use the 4 mm allen wrench to turn the screws counter-clockwise until they come off.
Lift the front of the seat, then pull it off the frame.
