use molegrips, or pipe pliers or something to grip the rubber sleeve tight enough to hold the metal tube on the inside.if you are goig to replace the indi, cut it off at the point where it meets the brachet, or split the nut.

Hi all thanks for the replies. Tried the nut splitter route but no joy due to the space inside the faring. I ended up using a soldering iron to melt off the stalk. This left the metal stub which you can fit a socket to and so unscrew the nut as normal. no damaged caused to any other parts and i was able to reuse the nut. Job done
