Removing and reinstalling ignition from triple - September 2, 2012, 03:21 PM

I need to swap upper triple clamps. How do you remove the safety pins that hold the ignition in place and what other screws from lowes, HD, etc would work when installing it back on the new clamp?

Kawi zx6r if it matters.

What safety pins do you mean? For my Sv you just need to remove two safety lock bolts from the underside of the ignition and it comes off.

That would be smart. I'm on the other side of the state for a few days sadly.


The screws have round heads with no place to put any type of bit. I can see red loctite remnants in the threads of the replacement clamp.

I would notch them with a grinder and use a straight screwdriver. possibly an 18volt impact if they are really tight

Yeah agreed

It should've been the same on ur old bike , unless it was removed prior to ur part out



.....yeah once you remove it just take the screw and/or tree to the depot and find some shit that works...u can also go to any auto parts store

bump, fail.

Tried cutting a notch for a flat head and taking an impact to it. No go. Think I'll just remove the whole thing and let someone else swap. I can't be bothered with it ATM...not enough time left to ride!

From the service manual: Using a center punch, tap one side of the safety bolt head at an angle. Drive the bolt in a counter clockwise direction to loosen.
I believe the bolts are 5mm.

Or just drill straight through the heads of the bolts with a bit the same diameter, or a hair bigger, until they pop off. Then is should be easy to remove the threaded part with some pliers.

They were probably the torx security screws. It's a torx bit with a little pin hole in it. If you drill the head off, you should be able to remove the last bit of the fastener by hand and be able to salvage the top bridge.

So...hammer a center punch in at an angle and twist. Really that simple?

Screw em and screw em. Just may just so I can get riding again and not speed money on stuff I don't own (aka center punch)

I know the torx security screws. My steering damper is held on by two. This is not that.
