    BV 350 Seat Lock, or lack there of?

    I have a 2017 BV 350. There is a button the handlebar to release the seat. My question anyone can walk up to my bike hit the button and seat releases. Seem quite silly that this is how this LOCK works. Doesn't seem like much of a lock at all. I mean why even have it locked if you can get into it so easy?

    Its supposed to get disabled when the handlebars are locked so likely something is out of adjustment or was bypassed by a previous owner.

    Saddle Cable CM012841 is tied in with the front fork lock and should prevent the electric solenoid that pulls solenoid/Actuator-lever saddle transmission cable CM012842 from being able to open the saddle.

    Whats that line from Whats Up Doc.. "Come in its Broken":
