The rear alloy frame badge housing is connected to the frame via two attached bolts, going through holes in the frame canopy to which two 'U' shaped spacer brackets are attached and secured with two x 8mm nuts. Behind each of the two nuts is a star washer.

From the underside, you can just make out the mounting brackets and nuts. I used penetrating oil to try to get these loosened. They are extremely difficult to remove from this type of machine as the bolt thread is quite soft material. Shearing them is very easy. Even with heat and plenty of penetrating oil, both these sheared.
Here are the correct fittings in the correct order and orientation as they are attached. To save your rear badge surround if this happens, you can cut off the entire thread, drill and tap the stub and then insert a new threaded stud.
