    Can't figure out how to remove the Yamaha QR backrest. Not sure which way to turn the key too. Anyone know how?

    There's a latch lever on each side at up\" class=\"ymln\">the back inside the the back rest frame that has to be press upward to release. Open saddle bags-press upward on the levers and at the same time pull upward on the backrest and it will come off.As far as the key I'm not sure I never lock mine.

    I can't recall the key position, but I know you can peek and see the tang move out of the way...I advise you to be careful taking it off: it can be a finger pincher and a fender scratcher!

    Thanks so much for the info and warnings! Worked great!! The key lock is turned to left or counter-clockwise to unlock.

    Wish I would have had the warning. Got both, pinched fingers and a scratch! See, always best to read here first!!

    Make sure that the steel rollers that the hooks connect to roll freely. I had trouble with mine until I loosened an over tightened bolt.
