  1. I just bought a 1995 Kawasaki ninja 250r and the battery is dead. I’ve taken off the side panels but seat still won’t come off. What else do I need to take off to remove the seat so I can access the battery

Mine is a newer design, but from what I see, it's supposed to be a matter of turning the key and removing the seat.

If you check the picture with the seat off, I don't see anything in there to keep the seat attached other than the lock itself.

While you're at it, it's a great idea to add a battery tender lead to the battery and apply a liberal dash of dielectric grease directly to the battery terminals. Around here, it's rather wet and the dielectric grease keeps the terminals looking like new.

The seat lock won’t unlock I’m guessing it’s jammed, any idea how to disengage the lock

Try pushing down/pulling up abruptly on the back of the seat while you try to turn the key.
