I'm simply trying to remove the seat, but the key won't turn at all in the lock. Any suggestions? I clearly don't want to break the key off. The overall objective is to access the charging cables to hook up a battery trickle charger.

    Does the key work in the gas cap? If so, Did you trying flipping the key the other way to see if it'll turn. Try pushing the seat down, use some force and try the key at the same time. Also if all else fails try the red key that came with the bike too. Good luck 🤞🏽

    So I rummaged through my original paperwork (bought the bike used) and found the RED KEY. Thank you.
