    2008 Speedster 150 - How to remove throttle/shift levers?

    Hey guys, I'm working on a little project and needed access to the hull underneath the throttle/gearshift levers. However, when loosening these screws they are being a BITCH to get out of there. Is there something I'm missing or should I just keep wrenching on these f***ers? I'm trying not to turn into the green hulk here and twist the heads off the screws.

    Well, I did that, and I twisted the bit on the screwdriver in half. These damn things wont budge. Ridiculous.

    Well, like I mentioned in my PM, it's possible they used the red loctite on 'em for '08. The ones on my '07 have always come out without too much hassle. The bit gave out before the screwhead? Heat it with a soldering iron, but it's going to take a few minutes for the heat to permeate down to the threads.

    good quality tools

    and some pb blaster should so it. Heat may be requried, but I'd go with PB first. Whatevery you do work with care, that assembly is really realy expensive.
