Working For Mother Honda!!

The big phillip headed bolts always get whacked with a hand impact driver before I remove them and greased before reinstall.Agreed. It is a problem on the Pioneer 500 as well. I went to change the oil right before selling one of my P5's and stripped out half the bolts holding the seat bottom, trying to get them loose. Had to buy new bolts from the Honda shop just to get it back together to sell it. The bolts are not only soft, but surprisingly tight or bonded in many cases.
Kawasaki uses those damm things everywhere. Atleast Honda uses them sparingly.
