    I'm pretty sure you need to heat the bolts and then break them loose, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm sure somebody else will join in.

    As far as the 2 outer rear bolts on the intake grate... you may want to heat them slightly... but not enough to make the brass inserts melt the pump shoe and spin Pump bolts... run em out

    Use a little cigarette lighter on the grate bolts, one at a time. Heat one for 10 seconds, loosen it, move on. You might have to turn the screw loose, then tight, then loose to work it out.

    You may need to use a small propane torch on the pump bolts as a cigarette lighter doesn't work well sideways... Ron

    Try this....take your time by just loosening the bolts at a tad.....then tightening the bolts again. then losen it again, a tad at a time...tighten it again.... The loose and tighten motion cracks the Red Loctight.....soon you will get the bolt out......without damage. I don't like the heat and get a bigger hammer technology when it comes to Fiberglass Patience is the key.

    +3 ... like Ron and Jammer said ... loosen, tighten gently, loosen again, back and forth ... this helps break up the loctite and greatly minimizes the chance of pulling an insert. Gently and take your time ... if the bolt resists too much, tighten a bit and try again. The darn loctite can cause trouble unless you take your time.

    I used a paint stripper heat gun (industrial hair drier) on some bolts on my stxr once long ago. Worked just fine. Good luck, and patience is the key.

    The first time I changed the brakes on my Sierra, I had to use the torch to break the red loctite loose to get the calipers off. Since then, it's been a piece of cake...
