In searching for the missing seat screw, I pulled off both saddle bags. This turned out to be a real hassle as the right one wouldn`t line up to engage both fasteners. If you got one locked in, the other would not line up, so if you pulled the (locked one) back out and then did the other end, same problem.
Finally, I learned a new trick. The seat strap bracket (which is also the front bag lock reciever brkt).......if you loosen that bracket bolt, so the damn fastener reciever can adjust a little......you can get it locked down and then re-tighten the bolt.
I figured this out after over a half hour of on, off, on, off
