get a moto tool with a cut off wheel
You can cut short the allen wrench and use it to make slots in socket head cap screws that wont come out

What do y'all think about replacing those allen bolts with something you can get a wrench on?

I tried a hex head bolt. Not enough clearance to turn it.

Cut the short end of the allen wrench to make it shorter.

Good for you Bro. That is going to be a nice ride when you get thru un-craping it.

Nice of old boy to leave you his bandana eh?

As others suggested, I took my allan wrench over to the bench grinder until it was short enough to use on the intake bolts.

If you want I will bring it to you and help you work on your new baby.

Best,

Cotton1

I don't mind having one to work on, as long as I got one to ride. I went ahead and spent $20 for some long socket type allens. Man, I'm glad I did! Everyone should have some in their tool box. Decided I'm going to need a new battery. Looks like the ears were broken off and they tapped the posts to make a riding lawn mower battery work or something stupid like that.
