Frankenstein Bolt Removal?

I've seen what people have been doing to replace the frankenstein bolts and have seen the thread on removing the tail section but have not found anything on how to successfully remove the frankenstein bolts (outside of drilling it or tapping it). I'm sure someone here will be able to let me know how in the world I can remove them? Thanks!

Just use a flat head screw driver to remove the black plastic cap that covers the bolt and the use a hex key to loosen the bolt......

Just checked with mechanic, and she can fit you in at 3 if you bring it by and she'll give you a rundown on the correct procedure.

Funk, I had to read that twice. Does he mean what I think he means?

Toss those and go with a cleaner look.

You know, I actually don't mind them as much? Given I am going to try to black it all out, I think its kind of needed to clean that look up?

ZRXMAX, if I go that route, I will gladly GIVE you my set.

That would be much appreciated ! Anybody else want to donate their Frankenstien bolts ? I would be happy to pay a modest sum for each pair so I can get a bunch of em together for my 5 year old grandson's Halloween costume next October!

Maybe take an old helmet and put a Mohawk of these bolts front to back or something !
:laugh:
