Hi and welcome to the site for Reno. Well, if it's anything like my 1100 it's just 1 bolt for the back seat and a couple on the sissy bar. Should be straight forward

Welcome from N Florida. To take the back seat and sissy bar off is easy. The back seat is 2 bolts under the front of the passenger seat. The Sissy bar is 2 bolts per side, but it will leave you with the 2 uprights for the bar. Those are also the mounts for the saddle bags. So unless you are losing the saddle bags too then you have to keep the bar or get creative on cutting it down.

Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. NGM is correct, I ride an 09' 950 tourer myself and that's how they're removed. We'd love to see some pics of your ride, so please share some with us.

Welcome from the east coast of Canada. I thought I saw a thread somewhere where someone removed those uprights and made it look real clean. Not 100% positive it was a 950 though.
