    Snapping off intake grate bolts xl700

    2004 xl700
    I needed a break from hooking the motor back up so I thought I'd take the intake grate off and check the impeller clearance. every bolt I touched snapped off (4) so far I drilled out two havent tapped them though I belive they are 6mm 1.00 is this correct Is this typical? Any other ways of getting them out? Easyouts never work for me.

    Try heating bolts a little before removing bolts. Good luck.
