    Not your usual exhaust bolt thread

    Thought I'd have a look to see where I could put the WBC sensor, then thought hey it's still sunny why don't I see if I can move those bolts?

    Took the other side of the fairing off, loosened the rad, put a bit of card over it, sprayed some CRC ... zap! straight out!
    Ok, let's see if I can get the header off ... wiggle wiggle twist zap! straight out

    This was all too easy - nothing broken, nothing smashed (even the rad fins are ok!), didn't leave any skin behind ... what am I doing wrong

    Neverseize brand. It's a thick silver liquid emulsion with very fine aluminum in suspension. They also make versions with other metals, like brass etc.

    But the best solution is to install studs instead.
    It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

    CRC 5.56 = WD40 does it not? I've got some Loctite Silver, so that's going on ... just realized I can't use studs - stupid Yosh uses springs

    Yeah, I'm paying for it now ... I've got wicked flu and sore throat like you wouldn't believe - kept waking up last night unable to breath

    I even got the bung welded today - took 20 minutes once I found the right shop ..! Finding the right shop was a minor miracle in itself ... just hope they got all the holes sorted and I drew the center correctly
