Use a Helicoil or a Recoil. Either is available at your local auto parts or search the 'net for "thread repair" and you'll find what you need. It will take a drill bit and a tap or two, but the hole will be as good as new when you are done.

Seat removal on 2009 harley softail deluxe


To install slide the retention nut over the tapered end of a cable tie strap so
that the larger O.D. of the nut rests on cable tie strap eyelet, then from the bottom of the rear fender feed the cable tie strap up through the fender hole, with the tab on the retention nut seated in the notch in the fender hole pull up on the cable tie strap to locate the nut snug up against the underside of the rear fender and then from the side opposite the tab i.e. from the rear of the fender slide the retention washer onto the nut which will lock it in place.

The FXST/FXSTB seat attaches with a single thumbscrew on the seat bracket. When installing a seat insert the tang at the front of the seat into the channel in the frame and install the single rear thumbscrew which Harley- Davidson has a special tool for which I have never even seen, pn HD-47190.

The FXSTC seat attaches with two fasteners through the sissy bar. When installing the seat the tang at the front of the seat is inserted into the channel in the frame and the two rear fasteners go through the and get tightened to 60-80 in-lbs (6.8-9.0Nm).

The FXCW/FXCWC Solo Seat is attached with 2 locating pins that for removal must be removed from their grommets by lifting the rear of the seat, then the seat is pulled to the rear to disengage the tongue from the frame. To install the seat put it on the frame, slide the seat forward until the tongue locks into the bracket, push the seat forward to align the two locating pins with their grommets and then push the seat down to engage the locating pins.
The FXCWC rider Seat is removed by tipping the seat up and towards the fuel tank, the two fasteners are removed and the seat is then taken off the bike. Do the reverse to install the seat and tighten the fasteners to 90-110 in-lbs (10.2-12.4 Nm).
The FXCWC Passenger Seat Support is removed by tipping the rider seat up and towards thefuel tank removing the two screws and washers from one pillion support, removing the pillion support and the rear seat pillion, then removing the remaining pillion support. To install it install one pillion support but do not tighten its fasteners, install the wave washer and bushing on each pillion support, install the pillion and the second pillion support and tighten all of the fasteners to an initial torque of 30-35 ft-lbs (40.7-47.5 Nm), then loosen the fasteners and then final tighten them to 38-42 ft-lbs(51.5-56.9 Nm), check the rider seat operation and then lower the rider seat into position and engage the locating pins into their
grommets.

To remove the FLSTN/FLSTF/FLST/FLSTC seat remove the passenger seat and seat mounting fasteners. When installing the seat insert the tang at the front of the seat into the channel in the frame and install the seat mounting nuts, then install the passenger seat.

To remove the FLSTSB seat remove the screw from the seat hinge at the front of the seat, raise the rear of the seat only slightly during removal or installation because pivoting the rear of the seat up too high can cause the nose of the seat to damage the leather trim panel on the fuel tank., to disengage the springs from the seat spring mounting pins and remove the seat. To install the FLSTB seat align the seat hinge with the mounting bracket on the frame, insert the screw into the seat hinge from the right side of the motorcycle and tighten it to 14-16 ft-lbs (19.0-21.7Nm), align the bushings on the seat springs with the mounting pins and push the rear of the seat down to engage the seat spring mounting pins. The seat position may be adjusted forward or rearward for rider comfort by removing the seat, removing the nut on the seat hinge, removing the bolts from the seat spring support bracket, (the seat hinge and seat spring support bracket must be installed in the same position in either a forward or a rearward configuration for the seat to fit properly on the motorcycle). To position seat forward install the hinge with the front tab in the slot, install the seat spring support bracket with the springs toward the rear of the seat. AND to position the seat rearward install the hinge with the rear tab in the slot and install the seat spring support bracket with the springs toward the front of the seat., THEN install the nut on the seat hinge and tighten it to 20-25 ft-lbs (27.1-33.9 Nm), install the screws for the seat spring support bracket and tighten them to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.3-27.1 Nm) and then install the seat.

      Unscrew the passenger seat\'s mounting bolt, positioned on
      the rear of the seat, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the
      passenger seat up and away from the rider\'s seat.




    • 2


      Flip the passenger seat upside down and place it on a clean
      work area. Pry out the seat cover\'s staples from the bottom of the seat
      pan with a small pry bar or staple puller. Pull off the vinyl cover and
      remove the foam from the seat pan.




    • 3


      Flip the seat pan over. Place the Utopia back rest bar over
      the top of the seat pan, following the contours of seat pan. Center the
      bar in the middle of the pan, then mark the location of the bar\'s
      mounting holes on the seat pan with a permanent marker. Remove the back
      rest bar.




    • 4


      Drill two holes into the seat pan at the marked locations,
      using an electric drill and a 9/32-inch drill bit. Place the back rest
      bar onto the seat pan. Screw the kit\'s bolts and lock washers through
      the bottom of the pan and into the back rest bar. Tighten the bolts with
      a 10 mm socket and a socket wrench.

      Lay the seat\'s foam next to the seat pan. Mark the
      approximate location of the back rest bar\'s protruding neck at the front
      of the seat onto the foam with a permanent marker. Cut a slit into the
      foam at the marked area, using a sharp knife. Place the foam over the
      seat pan and push the bar\'s neck through the foam\'s newly cut slit.




    • 6


      Place the vinyl cover over the seat foam and pan. Pull the
      cover tight around the sides of the seat and staple it into place, using
      a heavy-duty staple gun. Cut a slit into the seat cover with a razor to
      allow the back rest bar\'s neck to extend outward. Remove the paper
      backing from the plastic boot included with the back rest kit. Slide the
      boot over the bar\'s neck and hold it firmly in place for 30 seconds.




    • 7


      Reinstall the passenger seat on the motorcycle and tighten
      its bolt with a 10 mm socket. Place the back rest over the bar\'s neck on
      the passenger seat. Slip a bolt through the backrest\'s mounting holes
      and into the tube on the bar\'s neck. Loosely screw a nut onto the end of
      the bolt. Adjust the angle of the back rest, then tighten the bolt and
      nut using a 10 mm socket and a 10 mm wrench.

    How do you remove passenger and driver seat from 2000 HD fatboy


    with a stock seat there is 3 connection points, 1 under each side flap of the riders seat, the last one is behind the seat. If the grab strap is what is giving you a problem, on the left side of the bike where the strap is attached can be slipped down with an egg shaped slip on the strap. Special note: The 2 bolts under the flaps is a real "P.I.T.A." to get back on, if it hasn't been off a few times, and the bolts will strip, so use caution.

    Stripped Oil Drain Plug


    the Allen socket. I just bought a 96 Monster 900 the previous owner is an acquaintance and I know for a fact he had this ride serviced at the dealer. I am not totally surprised; I have been taking my BMW to this dealer for years and have a handful of WTF stories. Anyhow I am going to handle this myself. I am thinking PB Blaster vice grips, hammer and chisel.... I am wondering if I should put a little heat on the drain plug via oxy-propane torch. I would appreciate any and all advice in this matter.,If your bolt is stripped and you're finding that it is difficult to remove or repair, there's a few simple tricks you can try before turning to a professional for removal. Which method you use to remove the stripped bolt will depend on your particular circumstance. But first start by using a suitable penetration fluid, such as PB Blaster or WD40 to help you along with the removal process of the bolt. Spray the fluid around the head of the stripped bolt. You want the penetrating fluid to work its way down into the threads of the stripped bolt as you are working on it so removal will be easier. It can mean the difference between the stripped bolt coming out faster or you having to resort to more procedures to remove the bolt. Craftsman makes an excellent damaged bolt or nut removal tool that works like a vice on the head of stripped bolts and nuts. The more you tighten down on the stripped bolt, the more it bites into it and helps turn it out. You may want to try this first before resorting to drilling out the bolt. If you have to resort to drilling the stripped bolt out, you will of course need a drill and drill bits. Use a 1/4 inch drill bit in the center of the stripped bolt. Drill down about an inch. This hole will help guide the larger drill bits so drill it as straight as possible. Once you have that first hole drilled, you can start moving up in sizes with your drill bits until you have one drill bit a little smaller that the actual diameter of the hole. If you go too far you can damage the inner threads of the hole and make it near impossible to get a new bolt back in once you're finished removing the old bolt. Take your time at this stage. Once you have most of the stripped bolt drilled out, you can use a screw extractor kit to remove the bolt. This kit basically has threaded screw type heads that dig into the inside of the drilled bolt and grasps it as the bolt is being turned outwards. One of the least popular ways to repair a stripped bolt is to heat the head of the bolt. Do not use this technique when the bolt is screwed into an aluminum surface. If you heat a bolt that is in aluminum, when you go to turn the bolt after heating, you will not only remove the bolt, but also some of the aluminum surrounding the bolt. Once the bolt is removed you may want to spray the inner surface of the bolt hole with WD-40 or PB Blaster so the next time you don't start out an easy job by stripping one of your bolts.,,,
