this^^ I did my bike having never done it before. It's a kawasaki and they love allan bolts, so everything is slanted and round. I broke 3 bits on the entire bike. I could probably do a whole bike with one, maybe 2 bits now.



Having said that, I'm at most RideSmart track days. If you let me know before hand, I dont mind helping anyone out doing the basics...being oil filler/drain/filter and coolant cap/drain. Just throw in a couple bucks for drill bits is all I ask. All you would need to bring is a hose clamp big enough for your oil filter and having the bolts easily accessible. All of those can be done on the bike. The top fairing might have to be removed to do the coolant cap, but if that's too much work, we can do all the others. For everything else, it's just the lower fairing which is quick and easy.

I instruct for RideSmart and have gone down because someone losing their coolant cap while instructing level 1. It was earlier this year at MSRH. At CotA, someone lost their oil drain plug and caused a friend of mine (who was instructing) to go down. It also might have cost the guy who lost it his engine, not sure. I also heard that the bike was drilled for safety wire, just wasn't actually wired.

That is why I make myself available to do this for ANYONE that wants to do it.

then you're doing it wrong. just go slow and don't put too much pressure on it, if the bit is flexing then it's going to break. like someone else stated already, start the bit at 90 degrees, once you have a bite then angle it any which way you need to. a good punch will do wonders on starting the hole, that way the bit doesn't walk all over the place before it starts biting.

and in the end, joey saves the day again.

Carbide bits. "Going slow with no pressure" amounted to not even denting the bolts. Put a little pressure so the bit would bite..........snap.


I'll pay someone and/or buy pre-wired bikes from now on.
