    Need Help with Kawasaki Rivet Screws

    There are three rivets attaching the seat cover on each side of the undertail of my 636 that Kawasaki refers to as 'rivet screws' in their manual.
    Does anyone know how to remove these without destroying them?
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Push it in!!
    Shoot, i didn't think of that, i was trying to get the pin out!
    I'm going to try that right now... i hope it works, beacuse i accidentally unscrewed the rear seat lock, which i can't reassemble without taking off the 'seat cover'!!
    Thanks a ton!

    Yep, they push in and once you remove them you push them back out so the stick out past flush. Only when they are flush do they lock. So remove them and reset the pins for install, insert the whole fastener and then push the pins in flush to lock.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
