I just purchased a '78 DT250 at a yard sale. It has no spark and I want to get to the wiring harness under the seat. Problem is I can't figure out how to get the seat off the bike. The Clymer manual says "remove the seat" helpful but how the heck do I do that? I'm used to bikes with hinged seats and a simple release pin. This DT250 doesn't seem to be a hinged seat. How do I remove the seat?
Thanks, The seat is off and I suspect I found my electrical problem. The wires going to the coil look like they got pinched and the insulation was cut down to the bare wires which I suspect were shorting out against the frame. I had to stop for the night but plan to play with it some more tomorrow.
