HEEEEELP!!! Engine mount screw is stripping!!! - February 27, 2006, 07:17 PM

ok, so im trying to do my frame sliders but the fuckin engine mounts keep wanting to strip. im using the allen key that came with the bike and a breaker bar and cant get the damn thing to turn, so i push a little more, nothing, little more and it starts to strip. any solutions or is that allen hole like on a cars strut and its there to brace when i turn something else?

on an '05 636

STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING. 1. Do you have the engine supported from underneath?
2. You arent gonna finnish tonight.
3. Tomorrow take the bolt to Sears and buy a tap that matches. Might need a die to clean up the bolt too. If you dont know how to use them ask an older sales guy. Or ask here im sure someone here can word it better than me. SVbadguy for one.

There is a nut on the other side of that bolt. Find someone that knows what they are doing.

Here is a screenshoot from the 2003-2004 636 Engine Removal/Installation. Not very detailed, but it may give you a clue.

No need for a tap and die.
Rddy is correct.
You are just rounding out the allen key hole.
Loosen the nut on the back side first.

Steve said "nut"

Good to hear you got your frame slider on without damaging anything! Obey the torque specs when working on these beasts!
