I had to order two more bolts, hopefully they will screw in straight.

Great idea Senor Gar. Should have thought of that.

I did too since I've had the seat off & on probably a hundred times . The hex socket holes do wear out . Problem is Honda supplied a different bolt with a shallow socket half the depth of the original not to mention the small head . What did you get CD .

The one you wallowed out on the right.

Had to retap the housing to.

When I finally got the allen bolt in I overtightened it and caused the f*&#%! fender to crack.

Honda replaced the fender under warranty.

I didn't save the bag Senor but I know it was a grey color and shaped exactly like the one on the right.

I got 4 of those useless bolts and they appear to be the correct part # so I have substituted a proper socket bolt with enough depth that it won't self destruct and risk seat damage to grind it out. The C&C solo seat is almost an 1" wider over the bolt and there was no way in hell that I could get it on or off by myself until I cut out that plastic seat shield .

I just stand on the opposite side of the bike. You can pull the seat back with one hand and screw with the other. I think I'm just going to remove the seat bracket all together and install it with industrial velcro so it sits lower and tighter on the fender.

About a week later I ordered the Mustang seat and then the 2 seat bolts were open to view. Doesn't look great but sure beats the anguish of stripping bolts and housings.

Amof my Mustang fender bib is being delivered today to fill some of that space on the rear fender from switching to the solo seat.
