Me either TBH. But then I don't buy the $19.99 sets from Wal-Mart or HF either. Ive had most of them for 40 years. Not saying it wouldn't be a valid fix at times. The stock breather bolts did seem like the docket didn't go on very far but if I recall the 11/16 always got it off without issue. Just had to be sure to get it square.

So l got my breather bolts off today. YAY
l ground down a socket. someone has been in there before me.....
they were a bit torn up.
after all this dicking around, l ended up buying a complete S&S filter kit and breather bypass online here in Aus. the k&n filter was $110 alone, so l bought the kit. l went with that coz l have S&S slip ons on the bike already.
