I need to vent!
The ammount of thread lock Yamaha uses on some of their bolts is completely asinine! I'm nearly breaking bolts to remove them from the front cover of my GPR. I'm all for bolt security but this is fuggin' ridiculous! I'm a tech at a dealership and have skinned my knuckles more in the last 2 hours than I have in the last 2 years at work! You suck Yamaha!

Yeah, you're right. When i changed the fairings on my 06 the bolts were red loctited. The 2 small cheap torx bolts under the glovebox stripped in the first turn. I had to cut them off from behind with a dremel and cutting wheel. Replaced with stainless torx bolts and stainless nylon lock nuts.

I'd hafta say that the Flywheel cover bolts were the worst.

I completely agree! I broke off bolts trying to take the sponsons off the first time, and was scared of breaking more off when I was taking the pipe out this past weekend! How do you get the red Loctite off, anyway?

I pulled my head and exaust today and every bolt was a pain especially to get to the converter,i thought they was going to snap for sure.. The only easy bolts (the head bolts)imagine that.....
