radiator shroud bolt stuck in gas tank. 08 yz250f

Recommended Posts

I was cleaning my bike last night, and the bolt farthest back, by where your knee's are when standing straight up, is stuck inside and when i try to loosen it, the bolt turns, but so does the little peice that the bolt screws into.

how am I going to get it out?

what should i do when I do get it out?

looks like i need to sell it and get my 450 early.. haha jk

mine did the same thing. i used a socket in a drill, got it spinning while pulling out on the shroud, when it gets hot enough from spinning to melt the plastic you can pull it right out. then use some pliers to get the bolt out of the insert, and epoxy it back in the hole. i use lube on the bolts now. i know it may sound scarry, but that part of the tank is solid plastic, you dont have to worry about puting a hole in the tank.
