either side....i'm supposed to remove the stock motor mount (which i dont think has a nut) and bolt on the frame sliders using the longer bolt provided with teh frame sliders.....they're a little longer than the stock bolts

use a breaker bar (a long pipe which will fit around the wrench/ ratchet) this will make it a whole lot easyer... assuming as fishy said there is no nut on the other side you need to put a wrench on the other end to prevent it from moving

dammit i'll just take off the fuckin fairing, i was trying to avoid it but screw it
a breaker bar will scrape up the fairing, i barely have room for the allen wrench as it is

Just take that allen wrench to an auto store and buy one that fits into a ratchet. Then, put an extension on it and if still need be, then use the breaker bar. Good luck USD. :thumbup:

Yes you are, but thats not because you can't get the bolt loose, thats just using improper tools, you need an Allen socket, 10mm I belive, and then use a long ratchet. Thats the easy way to do it.

Hahaha I didn't mean for you to come grab it and leave I ment if you where still having trouble or trying to install your other toys and found out you need a lot more. Different tools you could come. Besides if I gave you mine then I would have to buy a new one... Remember my garage is sponcered by craftsman thanks to fishy use to work at sears.


Are you going to hooters friday?

there is a "pinch" bolt that keeps the motor mount bolt from coming loose. take the fairings off and you'll see it. loosen this bolt then remove the motor mount bolt.... they are not that tight once you see what i'm talkin about. if you just put a breakerbar on it you might strip out the head and then you'll be royally screwed.
