That's interesting - are you just using those threaded posts as locators or planning to use wing nuts? Probably no need as the rider seat would keep it pressed back.

No plan on adding wing nuts. Just the posts to hold the seat in place. Easy access, nothing to fuss with when trying to get at what's under the rear seat.

Off to the local hardware store to find M6x1.0 25mm long set screws with 3mm hex head



The only thing you need to be very careful with when reinstalling the seat is that the collar spacers don't come off and fall into parts unknown.

Two options here.
a) flip the collar to the inside (I opted to do this after taking the pics)
b) glue the collar in place
Just tried this, but I'm using my front seat in the low position, and with a little force, i can slide the pillion seat front and take it out while the front seat is locked, tried it with a 30 & 35mm threaded screw, same problem, but it works great if the front is in the regular position.

So of course, I lost one of those collars. Not disassembling the bike to go look for it. Just put the bolt back in and it seems to hold just fine. But anyone have any idea where you can pick up a replacement collar?

It is the perfect location for the cruise control unit sold by McCruise.com with a little space left over for small bits.

Do you have that McCruise installed on a 2018 model? A benefit of throttle by wire! Wish Honda would have added that at least as an option.
