Just two bolts, how hard could it be? Famous last words! I'd taken my saddle bags off before to clean the bike and had some difficulty getting it back together because of the way the bolts go through the saddle bag and sissy bar mounts and into the fender. So I knew that these bolts could be tricky. One went in pretty easy so of course the other one was giving me trouble. After a few choice words and hours of grinding my fingers down on the hex head of the bolt trying to thread it in the blind hole I got an idea. If the ends of the bolts had a bevel on them they might thread easier. So I went to the hardware store and found a bolt with a matching thread that was 1/4 inch longer than the original one. I fired up my bench grinder and put a bevel on the end of the bolt and it went in right away with no trouble at all. The designers should have thought of this, maybe I'll send them an email! After the successful installation I took it for a test ride and I love it! I can hardly wait to take it on a long ride and see how much more comfortable it'll be with some back support. The pad is nice and soft, and looks good with the studs to match the ones already on my seat.
