Suzuki screws - Wildweasil was right!

I have been replacing all those pesky Suzuki phillips head screws on the body with stainless steel bolts/washers. A while back Glenn had suggested using heat to soften the locking compound that Suzuki uses in assembly. Well, it works like a charm! I used a propane torch to heat the screw heads and followed up with an impact driver. Better than the propane torch would be one of those mini butane torches you can get from Radio Shack as you can direct the flame more precisely. I wanted to share this if anyone was/is considering replacing them......

All Good Medicine,
Crow

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......

Re: Suzuki screws - Wildweasil was right!

or if you don't have a hot torch of some sorts you can use a Cold Chisel and a BFH. Thats' the way I got all of mine out, they are now replaced with allen key heads (nice and flush and easy to get out on the trail)
