Grips

Trying to change my grips on 09' KLR. The allen bolt that is countersunk in the handle will not break loose. Anybody have suggestion how to get that loose?

I sprayed some super lube in there and let it set for a while. with a little cheater bar on the allen wrench, it broke free.

first mix a 50/50 blend of acetone and ATF and use as a penetrating fluid on the screw. Then either use an impact driver (the type you whack with a hammer) or while holding pressure on the hex key hit it with a hammer as you try to unscrew it.

Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..

It's a cheap one but always handy to have around

Hand Impact Screwdriver Set $9.00

Think home depot and such carry them also, usually under $20 bucks
