    striped rideplate bolt

    finally talked my brother into doing a couple mods to his 01 xlt 1200, the old ride plate wont come off because the front left bolt ont he rideplate is striped, i tried tightening it and unlossening it but nothing either way, any tricks to get that bolt out? thanks.

    the insert is probably spinning in the hull, where the bolt goes in.

    option 1: use an air/impact wrench to loosen it off

    option 2: get in the back of the hull, and put some vicegrips on the insert to hold it in place, while loosining it from the bottom.

    option one would be my choice..
