Ok, so I ended up removing the rear trunk, I figured that renovind 4 bolts was easier than wrestling the seat in place, but I still can’t get it to go completely forward, the screws are at the beginning of the slot

On the '85 GL1200A the seat is held on by two Alan bolts. There is a lever on the left side that is supposed to let you adjust the seat forward and aft. If the lever gets twisted 90 degrees it can cause problems.

Good luck.
