Thanks for the support, D. I have no choice. Looks like a shop would just eff it up worse. I'll clean up their mess and then just do everything myself going forward. I kind of like evenings in the garage. Beats the hell out of TV.

They are quite utilitarian and not too expensive. I highly recommend.

Is it a drill bit? I think I have one of them thingys. You like that better than creating a flat head slice with a dremel?

My EZ-out looks a little meaty for this little screw.

There's a guy down here I trust. And, so far, I trust the new owner of my dealer. I just hope I won't be needing them much. I'm focussed on taking my time and learning everything I need to know.

If you do not have a Dremmel or a set of ez outs and would have to buy either, I would go with the ez outs. It is a great tool to own and you will use it.

No drill.

The conical ridges are sharp and counter clockwise. You put the appropriate sized ez out into the stripped bolt, tap it with a hammer, put an adjustable wrench on the end and turn lefty loosey.

Dremel slot was clean. Practiced on another bolt head first. Still wouldn't budge. Ended up cutting the head off with Dremel and sliding filter off over the stem.

Filter was dented under two of the three screws. Whoever mounted that sucker drove it home. What a Richard.

I'm leaving for A conference tomorrow and then Mexico with the fam Saturday. I'll be shopping for a new filter and new hardware when I return.

BTW, another clutch adjustment and my lever pulls smooth. The downside is I adjusted the thing four times. The upside is I now have a full understanding and a bit if a "touch" for doing clutch adjustments. Never too old to keep learning.
