    If you can, weld a nut to it. My CB had a oil filter bolt that had NOTHING left for a head. It seems someone down the line swapped on a square head bolt? Either way, I welded a hex nut to it and the bolt came right out. In fact, I did such a good job I continued to use that same bolt instead of the brand new one I bought to replace it with.

    Yup, I purchased the bike at Seacoast and they were, of course, great. So I brought the bike there today, and Kyle had the bolt out in a heartbeat. And, he offered helpful tips on the tools and techniques required to avoid this in the future. Bottom line, a positive outcome: problem solved, and I learned some new stuff.
