I'm with Unga on this. Old Hondas are always presenting me with soft screws that round out almost immediately. I've had 100% luck drilling th heads off. Of course this is a tilltle trickier but if you get the head off you should be able to remove the dampening rod and extract it by hand or with a pair of pliers fairly easily.quote:Originally posted by UngaWunga
Yeah, you're screwed. Not really, but this won't be fun. AFAIK, the bottom of the damper will spin unless you can hold it still. You can do that with the special magic tool down through the top of the fork tube to the top of the damper rod.
Or you can do the easy thing and get a large enough drillbit to remove the head of the bolt and just pull the bits out. You can remove the stuck bolt once you get the damper rod out of the fork. That's probably what I'd do.
