Double post? Pull harder. It is tight fit. Just wait. Putting it back on is just as much fun. Only in reverse. I stand directly behind mine, and pull firmly rearward, and maybe a little downward, using both hands. There is a little recess on each side, passenger area, where you can get a good grip. Good Luck.

Stock seat I assume? If so you have to push or strike with your palms toward the rear of the bike because of the catch on the fender beneath the seat that hooks onto it.

If you have some weight like a couple of sandbags, put them on the rear pillion while trying to remove seat.

like Comanche said, hit it with the palm of your hand right in front of the passenger seat and it will pop right off.
