These plugs are hard to get out. I ran into the same thing on my Heritage, you just have to work at getting the things out.

Oh yeah, they are not really threaded. They just have a few rings, that hold on really well.

Thinking the threads in the frame would help I used a small pick or screwdriver to pry up opposite sides of the cap and grabbed it with needle nose plyers and turned it out like a screw. This worked pretty well.

Be careful with the length of the bolt you put in there.

I just put pipes on my fatboy. I drilled through the plastic caps to weaken the plug. Then I grabbed a hold with needle nose pliers and yanked and twisted. Came right out.
Use a drill bit smaller than the hole that the plug sits in. You don't want to damage the threads. Go in straight, and be careful!
