Re: 900rr front mudguard

I've just done a similar thing with a 98 mudguard. I achieved it with an angle grinder over several hours, to ensure it didn't go so hot as to melt the plastic.

Re: 900rr front mudguard

Thanks for your help. I didn't know which route to go down drill or grind it. Where did u start bolt heads or from the inside. It has custom paint so didn't want to damage it all. Thanks

Re: 900rr front mudguard

The way I did it; by which I don't necessarily mean the best; was to grind back down so the head remained intact. I did it this way as it was less metal to grind than the head of the bolt.

Yeah they're always a pain in the arse. I had that before now but i got mine out by hammering a slightly larger torx bit and holding the square nut on the inside with a spanner. But, depends on whether it's the top or bottom bolts that are stuck.
IIRC the top ones are held in by a plate that has nuts welded on to it n the bottom has a plastic u-piece that holds captivated square nuts?

Re: 900rr front mudguard

You can use a soldering iron (decent one), by placing the tip of it on the bolt head and heating up the metal to allow the bolt loosen the threads and try to get it out while its hot....here is an article that might help also:

I wouldn't have thought a soldering iron would conduct the heat quickly enough to be that effective?

The soldering iron heats up at a decent rate and its easy to direct the heat to a point as it will heat up the whole bolt but should not do any damage to the fairing.

Re: 900rr front mudguard

Thanks for all your advise. I went with the grinder to the back and a drilled the front. Worked a treat. Had to do in in stages tho so didn't melt the mudguard.
