Default Bolt size help

I bought an 07 Kingpin last month and discovered that the bolts attaching the drivers seat seem to have the incorrect thread size. They're an allen bolt located behind the side covers. On my bike, it looks like the original owner replaced the bolts with something that doesn't quite fit. They only screw in about 1 full turn, then the threads bind up. Can anyone tell me the proper thread size for the seat bolts?

Default RE: Drivers Seat

Cody it seems the thread that was referenced is for the passenger seat bolts and probably won't do you much good. The only thing that might be useful is the heli coil trick since I believe what you are dealing with is not attached to the fender, but the frame. Good luck and you might want to send a message to either diamond or kevin since they seem to be the experts here.

'06 Kingpin BIG RED

Custom Seat

Money is no option, but without it my options are limited.

Thanks, that's what I needed. I'll try new bolts first. If that fails, then I'll look into drilling the threads out and using a detent pin or something similar.
