Wow! When I did mine not long ago (an '07), I had no issues loosening them. Just a 1/2" drive wrench- not even a breaker bar.

Apologies in advance, because this post is totally off-topic. Versatek6 - your signature says one of your bikes is a "2003 V-Strom ("Pearl Orpiment Yellow")". Can you post of photo of that bike Ö I have no idea what colour "Orpiment Yellow" is, or looks like.

Now back to our regular programming ...

That's the "real" name of the original 2002-2003 yellow. It's peeking over the edge of the bag in my avatar. There are a couple more photos in my Garage. Photos don't look as nice as the real thing, because you miss the pearlescent lustre of the finish.



WIKIPEDIA: "Orpiment is a deep-colored, orange-yellow arsenic sulfide mineral with formula As2S3. It is found in volcanic fumaroles, low-temperature hydrothermal veins, and hot springs and is formed both by sublimation and as a byproduct of the decay of another arsenic mineral, realgar. Orpiment takes its name from the Latin auripigmentum (aurum, "gold" + pigmentum, "pigment") because of its deep-yellow color."


I think one of the worst jobs one could have would be naming colors.

Not promoting anything here but... I did youtube T-Rex on FJR1300. 2014 model. I tried to be real clear on needed tools

Google:

Thats me. Since I am not selling anything my videos are short and to the point. I will not waste your time.
Thanks all, sorry if posting this was not appropriate.
