How to remove the passenger seat

Hi, I have an 06 Stratoliner Midnight and I'm looking to replace the rider and passenger seat. The factory manual does not cover removing the passenger seat. Any help or references would be appreciated.

Remove the driver's seat and from that point you should be able to figure it out. The seat is held on with 2 brackets if I remember correctly. I removed my seat permanently, filled the bolt holes and painted them over. Luckily, I was able to fit the stock pass. seat with suction cups I found at Joannes Fabrics for about 3 bucks, this saved me around 50 on one of those cheap p pads and when it's on you can't tell it's not permanently mounted. And when it's off it looks cool as hell!

Thank you very much

Thanks for your reply, It was not that difficult once I got started. I ended up replacing the stock seats with a Mustang rider with back rest and the queen recessed passenger seat. Both my wife and I are very happy and comfortable. Thanks again.
