I have a 94 Polaris RXL 650 triple. Not sure of the name of the bolts but they are the adjuster bolts at the rear of the rear suspension. One on each side, they push the rear axle back or allow them to come forward to adjust the track tightness. Anyway, they are seized bigtime. I have tried heat, WD-40, and yelling at them but the bolts barely move. I can get them moving but they seem to be turning inside the small aluminum bracket they go into. I was thinking of drilling out the rivets on the aluminum piece they go into to get them out on a bench in a vice and try to get some vice grips on them with major heat. If I do this, can I just bolt the little aluminum brackets back in? Or does anyone have any better ideas as to get these bolts out?

Thanks

Geeze...usually yelling a cussing does it for me.
WD-sh**ty is not very good at seized nuts.
Go buy some penetrating fuild like "Bolt-out" and don't spare it when putting it on.
I'd try that before drilling holes in your slide truck.
Good luck.

Two liitle magic letters: P B penetrating magic bolt out stuff. This shit is amazing.

Put anti sieze on them when you put the new ones in.

ummmmm, hate to state the obvious, but did you loosen the bolt that runs thru the axle?

Do you think they might be stripped?

And after you tried all of the above, NEVER underestimate the power of HEAT!

I did take the bolt out of the axle. I am almost positive that the bolts are just spinning inside. Stripped.

Thanks
