Your manual is describing the early method of tank mounting on the K100. The tank on your '92 is mounted with two "pegs" at the rear of the tank into grommets in the frame. The pegs are held in place with "E" clips under the grommets. After the clips are removed, you pull up on the rear to release it. From my experience, removing and installing isn't easy.
The seat release is on the left side, below the seat about half way back. It is lockable so you may have to unlock with the key. Push inward to release the seat to hinge up. You remove the seat by removing three e clips from the pivot points of the seat. You may have to remove the side covers for better access. They come off by pulling the forward mount peg out of the tank grommet, pushing the cover down to release a hook in the center, then forward to release the rear peg.
