I have an 06 gixxer k6 and I stripped the shit out of these bolts trying to get them off:
They're only supposed to be torqued to 7 ft-lb per the service manual. But with their thread lock and the fact that they haven't been touched since mfg of this motorcycle they're practically welded in there.
They have a 4mm hex head which is tiny and didn't stand a chance with the force to get these off. I rounded the hole and the hex grip is gone.
Now I dremeled a nice slit to fit a flathead screw driver, but these fuckers won't budge. The flathead is stripping the slit and I can't get any leverage. They're mangled now and I think it's time for a screw extraction.
So 3 questions:
1) Does anyone have the size spec of these screw threads (width, length & thread)? Specifically the width so I know what size extractor bit to use.
2) Do you agree that it's time for a screw extract? What product is best and where to buy? EZ out? Home Depot? Auto store?
3) Extra opinions on this matter
