Yup I did it all by myself. Twisted that little dude right off. Man they dont make em like they used to do they. Okay enough sugar coating. I snapped it off and am curious to know how much hassle is it to replace and are there any mods to make it better ie. stronger in doing battle with my gorilla wrench.

Thanks In Advance

I did it on Sunday morning changing my Corbin seat out for the stocker so I could take my daughter for a ride. DOH! I used a Dremel to grind off the head of the bolt on the underside if the fender, its tight but you can do it without removing the fender. Then I bought a stainless bolt and acorn nut from the hardware store and used epoxy to keep bolt in place. I thought it was going to be a huge pain in the a$$, but turned out to be not such a big deal.

Something else you might think about are the two seat bolts (on each side of the seat). I did the "Seat Pin Mod" this weekend and am very happy with this: http://www.bareasschoppers.com/seatpin/

Might as well prevent any future problems, if you can. Good luck!

That sure looks like a sweet mod! But Im not sure I want to make it that much simper for someone to steel my $700 seat!
