So simple yet so much easier.
Swapped out the allan bolt for a big thumb screw. Makes it easier for me to get the seat off if im ever stuck at the side of the road and time is of the essence. Id have liked to have done the same for the 2 seat bolts but theres just not enough room.
If anyone wants to do this mod give a message and ill link to where I got it:

Sure. Bare in mind that it is a little bit tight between the thumb screw top and the luggage rack. Probably took me 15-20 seconds before I could make it thread its way in. Depends what luggage rack you have though im not even sure if mine is OEM.

screw:

I needed some new screen bolts as the ones I had were rounded off. Saved me having to drive all the way to the nearest fasteners to find out what I had and be charged £1 per bolt, instead just measured it and ordered online.
