    broke 3 of 4 seat rivets

    Ok, so I notice after riding on Sunday that I have broken 3 of the 4 rivets that hold the front clips on teh seat of the 750SL.

    Anyone have an idea for fixing, or know where to get some sort of 3/8" or 1/4" rivet

    Been there......


    Actually used a small toggle bolt for a while on her old ride.

    Since then, I use the hollow wall expansion anchors. (the ones that squish down and pull tight)

    not yet, why did you have to burst my bubble. Cool thing about these is that you can remove the bolt without losing the back
