Super easy.
* Pull the seat, turn it over and locate the two nuts that hold the strap on. These nuts also hold the seat stays that cause your pain.





* Pull those nuts off, then the strap, then your metal brackets/stays. (you don't see the strap in these pictures because I had already done the work and took the strap off for good when I decided to take pictures for the interwebs)





Now put on 1 or two flat washers... they can be thin gauge. It won't take much to get you where you need to be. You might even add three if you're really fighting with it. I used the washers I had left over from pulling off the extra reflectors and crap that the dealer put on.





Now put your metal brackets and nuts back on ;)


You should be able to get your seat on and off a little easier now. I took a video after I added the washers, but you can't see it very well.


Good luck!

Thanks a ton man. The stupid seat removal and reattachment is my only real complaint about the Grom.

Happy to help. I was afraid I was going to rip my seat in half trying to get it off, I knew it had to be a simple fix.

My seat works great. BUT! The rubber bumpers on the front (Far Right in the above photo) came out twice. They seem to be installed nice and tight now.

Because of your write up I have an easily removable seat. At the dealership the salesman was like "I can't get the seat off but there's a book in there" I just laughed and said, I got it lol

Thanks for the heads up!! I have mumbled a few choice words today while working on my bike! Already removed the strap, so this is a 2 minute job!

I took off my strap and clips,those things were a pain and I don't ever think I would use the strap as a handle. It looks much better with out the strap and replacing the seat is a breaze now.
