Afternoon all

I am just about fed up with this stupid bolt, I need advice or a bigger hammer :evil: .

The bolt I am referring to is nr 33032
www.motosport.com/dirtbike/oem-parts/kaw...r650/rear-suspension

I have managed to soak the bolt with all kinds of muti and must add that in case anyone ever has a bolt that is rusted or stuck use the combination of 50/50 Automatic Transmission Fluid and Acetone. That stuff really works!!!!! B)

So after soaking it I have managed to turn the bolt. It now turns quite freely but still can't get the stupid freaken bolt out, I have been hammering it harder every day for the past 2 weeks. Now the bike is originally from KZN and has never been greased in that area before, hence my struggle :( .

I know Gix used to have a nice home made bolt remover tool, which he lent to another tool who broke it :side: Het jy alweer so tool vir ons gemaak Gix??? :whistle:

Is there anyone else with advice or stronger arms or a bigger hammer that could possibly help :P

I actually think this is a sign as the new bearings are expensive :silly: kawa quoted me +-R1800


If that bolt is not out by this weekend I am cutting it off :angry:

Hahaha! Dink jy hy sal nog werk? Ek het 'n skoonpa wat baie handig is.... Meskien kan hy dit duplicate?

Hier sal iewers 'n draad wees waar ek my as af gesukkel het, later na 'n helse fight het Kawasaki SA die bout en bearings op hulle koste vervang
As hy draai beteken dit hy draai heel moontlik in die bearing, nog nie te sê hy gaan skiet nie
Die bout het basies in die bearing gesieze
Baie sterkte - dink nie die KZN is die probleem nie, handelaars gee die goed nie ghries met pre delivery, slim man by Mike Hopkins wou my vertel as hulle dit ordentlik doen, maak hulle nie geld nie
In my geval het dit vir hom ge backfire

Haha ek wens my fiets was nog onder waarborg, want dan het ek definitief dieselfde gedoen! Ek sê maar net die feit dat die fiets van Natal af kom het bietjie bygedra dat als nog meer vas geroes het.

Gaan maar die naweek 'n bottel Klipdrift down en dan die ding uittrek met my tande... Klipdrift maak mens sterker :-)

Nee nog nie.... Daai plastiek guide proppie wat jy vir my gelene het bestaan nie meer nie ;-)
Ek het die hele ding bietjie skeef vasgetrek, nou die skroefdraad beskadig op die pivot bolt...

Plan B is om met dremel die beskadigde skroefdraad af te werk, dan gaan ek 'n nut vasdraai op die pivot bolt. Die nut gaan ook my guide wees vir die ander boud.

Het jou gesê ek moes die hammer metode gebruik het. Ons jong mense van vandag het nie geduld nie... En is te sterk ;-)

Hey guys. If the bike is propped up at an angle, even with the rear engine mount bolt lose, will it affect getting out the rear swing arm pivot bolt? I can't get mine out either and the bike is in immaculate condition.
