I've been hitting it like I gotta drive a nail into oak. I'll hit it some more, and see what happens.I have NEVER lost a engine side cover bolt. tighten them to spec, and they will stay there till you want to remove them.
If the flywheel remover is looser after being struck on the end with a hammer, it should only take a couple or three repetitions of this snug up and strike cycle to have the flywheel pop off. you should not keep trying to make it tighter.. perhaps you are not shocking the end of it enough. You have to give it a very sharp rap.
I don't know what kinda treatment this bike had before me, so it might be why I lose bolts everywhere. I lost one of my foot peg bolts on the expressway at one point. Not since I started using the blue goo though...
Just tried some more. Not moving. I'll take it back out and try some more I guess.
