completely stripped nut on cylinder

Recommended Posts

I have a completely stripped nut on my cylinder. The bolt has no corners and is almost completely round. I have a 2001 CR250r. The bolt is on the left side. It is towards the exhaust. So anyone who knows this bike good will know that bolt is snug! For those of you who don't, http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.fast-autos.net/diecast-cars-models/diecast-car-image-large/honda-cr250-2001-complete-motor-engine-cr-250_220737738539.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.fast-autos.net/diecast-cars-models/Honda-CR250-2001-complete-motor-engine-cr-250_220737738539.html&usg=__iM4GWM1wwQiRXvRpic9IK37T-Sk=&h=300&w=400&sz=31&hl=en&start=15&sig2=S9B2BfCvldts2llFrpBzdA&zoom=1&tbnid=hSUpTZQwxt7_hM:&tbnh=144&tbnw=196&ei=ojjRTd46j4LRAf-F3JQO&prev=/search%3Fq%3D2001%2BCR250%2Bengine%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26biw%3D1152%26bih%3D638%26tbm%3Disch0%2C576&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=396&page=2&ndsp=15&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:15&tx=130&ty=53&biw=1152&bih=638. It is the bolt opposite the bolt under the PV or CRV. Its in a super tight spot! There is barely room for a wrench let alone vice grips. See the problem is that I need to put a new gasket on, I'm losing coolant. Now how do I get this annoying bolt off? I've already wacked a few cabinets with a hammer and thought about just beating the bike with the hammer too. lol

Check your local tool shop for a damaged nut remover, its a socket designed to remove damaged and rusted bolts i have a set and it comes in very handy for situations just like this. Hope this helps

@KTM-548cc i am really thinking about it man! Or just driving it off a cliff! That'll get the damn bolt loose! @1996CR250Guy, sockets wont fit. It's to tight of a spot! The dynamite idea is starting to sound really good right about now!

the only other thing i could suggest would be to grind a small groove into the nut so as to get a hammer and chisel punch on it, and heat the nut with a torch to cause it to expand then try getting it loose with the hammer and chisel punch.

you should be able to get it off with carefull application of a hammer and a chisel. first you whack it streight on with the chisel to try to loosen the nut some by expanding it. then you go at it at an angle trying to turn it. Sometimes it is good to start with a sharp chisel to expand it and get the notch started for turning it, then dull it so it does not cut the nut but allows you to get a good whack into it to try to turn it

nut cracker probebly wont work on it.

id use a dremil to cut a good deep notch into it and heat it right up and give it a cuple good wacks with a dull cold chisle.

It will take about 30 seconds to remove the nut with a sharp chisel and a hammer.

Go to the motorcycle machine shop. They can remove the bolt without any further damage. Good luck.

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
