Driver Backrest Mod 2

Submitted by Terry Briggs

Rick’s driver’s seat mod was very detailed but I choose to buy one off of Ebay for $43.00 from backrestempire and install it but the bolt issue happened to me also.

Notice the red Loctite? What the heck was Honda thinking? Anyways, I decide to try something a little bit different. I went to Home Depot and bought these bolts

I installed them through the fastener like this

And put some JB Weld around the top like Rick

And inserted the fasteners to the holes and ended up with this

Hint, put some Scotch Tape around the threads before inserting into the holes to keep the JB Weld off of the threads or you could end up with the original problem only worse.
