Seat Lock Cables

Venhill have been making high quality replacement motorcycle cables since 1970. The latest addition to our ever-expanding catalogue are Seat Lock/Release Cables.

Overlooked by many riders, Seat Lock/Release Cables can stay unchecked and unlubricated for weeks, months and even years, leaving them prone to failure.

Although it can sound trivial, a broken or failed cable can prevent access to battery and fuses and leave essential items, like tools, locks, mobile phone or house keys trapped under the seat, just when needed most.


All Venhill Seat Lock/Release Cables are made in our UK factory, which is ISO 9001 certified, to our ‘Featherlight’ specification.

An upgrade to the standard fitment, each replacement cable features marine-grade stainless steel inner wire for minimum stretch and a teflon liner, to reduce friction. Like all Featherlight cables, they are ‘maintenance free’ and do not require lubrication.

Each cable is also ‘Bird-caged' – a special process applied to the end of the inner wire, which allows solder to penetrate the weave of the cable, making the bond with the nipple much stronger. This process adds extra strength and durability, so cables can withstand being put under repeated stress and pressure.

Venhill Seat Lock/Release Cables are currently available for a growing number of makes/models and more are being added all the time.

If you can’t find a seat lock/seat release cable for your bike listed on the Part Finder, simply send us the original and we can produce a replacement in our UK factory.

And if you have a special requirement, e.g. a longer cable, we can make something for you.
