    The easy way to take off a SeaDoo Supercharger top torx bolt.

    I found a great wrench for taking off a SeaDoo Supercharger top torx bolt from Home Depot. It is a closed end Ratcheting 5 Degree wrench. It was about $6.00

    That looks pretty thick, sure that thing will fit between the bolt head and the SC housing?

    I had to grind down a tiny box wrench that didn't have a ratchet build in.

    It gets more interesting when the top bold is stripped. After a lot of swearing and stressing out I build this contraption and get it loose from the back side.

    It's a box wrench with a torx bit and some tape. I was able to get this thing to slide from the back and get it loose. "Holy crap it worked" was what came out of my mouth. Of course, this is just before I spent the next two days trying to get the SC to come out ..it was pretty much welded in.

    I will know for sure in a day or 2. You might have to grind it down some. This looks just like the one that works 100% from home depot but they don't have it in the store any more. http://www.amazon.com/Vim-Products-H.../dp/B003TSMQWU

    I replaced all the SC bolts with regular stainless hex ones. Top bolt I added a bunch of washers under the bolt head, longer bolt, to build enough clearance so future removal will be simple with a regular size wrench.

    That is what I use to use. This one I have with the ratchet on it makes it super fast and easy to get off. Also less of a chance of dropping it. Ask me how I know lol

    That tool does not work or even fit for that matter.

    I use a 12-point boxed end like REID says.

    FWIW: You will not have any issues leaving the screw out as the bottom two are enough. After all, its just there so the SC doesn't fall out.

    This tool fits from Home Depot. I just cant find it any more. Husky part #66604 but it shows the other one that I posted now. the top pictured one might have to be ground down. I will know in a couple of days.

    Thanks.
