They are tamper proof bolts, the head breaks off once you tighten them, they also are red loctited in place, so while drilling out to the bolt head gets you easy access to remove the ignition from the top troiple- you then should apply heat and grab the stub with a vice grip to unscrew them instead of trying to drill them out completly
Well that is unsettling. I took the stem head off this morning, not expecting the ignition bolts to be filled in and ground down a tiny bit. I assume that is some anti theft thing Kawasaki did at the factory. However, they still seemed seated tightly and not loose, so I'm now assuming the plastic assembly is damaged. The manual says to use a chisel or punch to turn that bolt out.... but I think i'm just going to drill it out and use a torx bit. This might end up being one of my new winter projects that I'll do.
but if the bolts are tight the body of the ignition should also be tight........
Is the base cracked or is it just the internals that are loose inside the body
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
