My key don't open the seat compartment.

I try today to open my seat compartment, but the key just turn and it doesn't release it the cover, what's the best way to fix that situation. I know I need to go a mechanic's training. Thanks for any help for this newB.

I assume you have a Gen 1 F4. Push down lightly on the rear of the tail section and turn the key at the same time. I took the seat lock off my bike and just pull the cable by the little tab. Now I don't have to worry about bending the key

If you look at the keylock for your F4 (and that is an assumption made by your avatar) you can reach behind it with your finger and find the cable that runs to the rear lock post. While pushing down on the rear-most part of your seat, pull the cable until the seat unlocks.

After you have released the seat, adjust the barrel adjuster at the latch to remove slack.

I fell into this trap as a newbie to MV. Obviously aware to not exert too much pressure on the key, but then realised I ought to add some pressure to help the seat.

No such issue on my Hondas Woops, think I'd better go now

Yes. In that picture, you can see the connection point to the keylock. You should also check that nut is snug holding the lock barrel.

Did you get your tail open?
