I am locked out of my underseat storage on my Flyscooters il bello. Typically I would turn my key and the seat would be unlocked and spring up an inch or so. Now when I turn the key I get a new "click" sound after turning the key all the way to the right. Turning the key does not unlock the underseat compartment!
My tools, motorcycle safety card, registration, etc etc is under the seat. I can only bend the back of the seat up about 2 inches before the bending becomes excessive. I'm worried about getting pulled over and not being able to provide the required documents.
Obviously the key turning mechanism is out-of-whack somehow.

if you cant get it out, you can always drill it out and replace the lock.start with a 1/8 bit,and insert the drill bit (in drill,spinning,lol) as you would the key.keep moving up in drill bit sizes untill all the tumblers come out.you cant mess up anything,because its already broken!.after you drill it out, put a large flat head screwdriver in there and give it a twist.hope you get it fixed the easy way tho'! good luck to you sir.

If the lock you're talkng about is like our Xingyue and on the ignition switch, then the switch is a POS design and it fails. If you have a seperate lock, then it's not so bad. You should be able to reach up and under and manually get to the cable in either case and release the seat.
If it smacks you like a bug & tastes like a bug, then it probably was a bug.

Thanks guys, I am going to try the coat-hanger idea. I think the key turning is pulling the cable because I can feel the same tension as before, but I think the cable is not engaging the release like it used to...
Maybe I'll make a video of me tugging and pulling on the seat to no avail.
if you can pull up the rear of the seat about two inches. and pry open the battery compartment lid with a flat bladed screwdriver, then the latch can be visible and accessable with a long screwdriver...probably need flashlight as well.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
