OK.....I've searched around and haven't seen anything specific on this....so I'm gonna ask.
On my 2001 Hugger.....I want to add a shorty peg to the brake side mid-control mount...not going to Mid's....I just want a little spot to change footing to on longer cruises. So I got that all figured out....BUT
The large allen head bolt that has to be removed to install what would be a peg mount....HOW THE CRAP DO I GET THAT OUT????
(fingers off the keyboard...YES...I do have a manual....and YES I have explored this...but everything is for installing forwards...and there are no pics or anything that mentions or shows the nut on the back side of that bolt, which is inside the rear cover. ) Before I tear further into this and try to get the cover off....Is that nut supposed to be captured by something (the casting) holding it in place so it doesn't spin? Or are you supposed to have to take the cover off and get a socket or special tool on it to get at it???
I loosened the cover and moved it out some but couldn't get a socket to get on it (it's recessed into a counterbore, and I couldn't (blind) get a socket in there that would hold it).
Just wondering if someone can confirm this....or was this cankered up by a previous owner and not the way it's "supposed" to be...
Thanks in advance!

OK...that makes me feel a little better....at least now I know.
It didn't seem right to me that you would have to remove the sprocket cover....so I was worried that maybe what ever was holding the nut in place had stripped out or something.
I played around with it a little....seemed like the rear pipe was in the way??? That exhaust stud for the front stock muffler is pretty long and it wasn't seeming to be giving me enough room....I'll have to play a little more I guess!
