First: I found that the HD dealer that put my luggage rack on, at purchase, used standard bolts to secure the base plate, not metric, and striped the allen head on a rack bolt. <snip>
I'm not trying to side with the dealer but HD shipped a whole bunch of plates and luggage racks with half the bolts metric and half SAE. The mechanic should have stood back and said WTF rather than force them on but hey, chrome hangers can only think so far outside the box ;)

I had to make an emergency run to the parts store to pickup metric bolts, I ended up replacing the bull sh*t chrome hex heads with good 6 point SS metric bolts for the bolts that mount to the fender.
