I'm thinking I need to do this more and more. Bike just died on my at a stoplight today. Second time this has happened.
Make sure that you have a good torx bit. In the end, I ended up having to soak the bolts overnight with penetrating fluid, heating them with a heat gun, and using an impact driver (it's a little unnerving hammering on an aluminum motor). And still, I gnarled the heads up and had to replace them. I ended up replacing them with hex-keyed (allen) bolts.
Sorry to resurrect this thread, but any other suggestions of how to get the ignition sensor off? I'm having a bastard of a time removing the torx screws.
Chewed through 2 heat treated torx bits from auto zone. The screw heads still look ok, but I'm worried they're going to get stripped if I try again.
Also, what kind of penetrating fluid and how should I soak the screws and it from entering the engine?
