advise on how to take off a stubborn bolt? no progress
« on: June 27, 2020, 01:23:05 am »
Hey,
 trying to mount Baron engine guards and have to take both foot controls off. Not budging at all on left (gear) foot control, weight of bike is not going through it and still not budging. Heard from someone to spray it with WD 40 and wait for it to soak a bit then try again. Any advice?
the bolt is the one with the "8" on it

I believe I used my aviation wrenches (extra-long for higher torque) for those bolts.
