Top Fairing Bolt on 954

I can't seem to remove one fairing bolt from my lower fairing that's under the duct cover. The bolt seems to spin in the clip nut but the clip nut isn't spinning in place. The bolt seems to spin in the clip nut.

I sprayed WD-40 and it didn't help.

Any suggestions?

try getting a small flat head screw driver under the head of the screw while prying up on the screw slowly start backing it out with your 5mm allen.

Or reach up underneath to push the screw up while turning it from the top.

Re: Top Fairing Bolt on 954

I finally got it off.

The screw driver advice worked on one bolt and I used a pair of vice grips on the other to pull up while twisting the bolt.

Both upper bolts were stripped for some reason. Now I have to order more bolts.

I was also able to change my coolant, once I removed the bolts. I didn't realize there was another bolt under the reserve tank that needed to be removed also. I could only get two quarts of coolant in because I didn't remove that bolt. That's when I realized that something was wrong.

Looks like I'll be draining the system again and putting some more coolant in the bike.

Re: Top Fairing Bolt on 954

Are these the bolts under the duct-covers that you have to take the covers off first to get to? If so, $5 each or so from the stealership... I had to order one lol. I actually ordered the lower duct cover bolt and clip as mine vanished, the fairing bolt was like $6 or $7, so I just ordered 2 of the duct ones. Needless to say they are of different design, but I made it work for now =)

Re: Top Fairing Bolt on 954

Yeah, its the bolts under the duct cover. I just ordered two bolts from bikebolts. I hope I ordered the correct bolts.

I paid $3.00 for two bolts and two washers.

M5 15mm is the correct bolt

I ordered M5 16 mm bolts because they didn't have 15mm bolts.

Just to let you know a friend of mine has told me about a 'cheat' to buy cheap screen bolt kits from Probolt
