It’s like Honda engineered it eat things and be a PITA. Just have the seat off and randomly drop a small object like a screw/nut/bolt and it WILL fall into a hole and be a whole big project to get it out. The plastics are all at a slope and quite a few of them slope down to a space where what ever falls can fall even farther (as the case under the front seat pan) and the funny thing is, it seems like there is no real reason to have a gap in those places. And sorry to hear I’m not the only one too, with those OEM nuts for the rack that really should be at least somewhat secure or accessible of the fall out so easy... But I will ad, this aside, I do love this bike..
BTW I ended up siliconing mine in place...
