Newbie to the forum, just got my SFS....
Started to clean her up a bit, removed reflectors, removed all warning stickers(what a job), made my own tail tidy, came out great.
Tried to remove passenger foot peg hanger on left, can not get bolt closest to rear shock out with normal allen key wrench, any pointers will be appreciated.

Tx in advance

I've usually ended up owning a "spare" set of allens/sockets/etc. The spares get cut or bent as needed for such dealings as this.

It's probably just the threadlocker holding tight. Try an hex key socket so you can get more torque on it.

The bolt is dipped in red threadlock and a bitch to get out, keep on going loose tight loose tight.............at some point you get it out.

Ahh yours as well Guido. Red threadloc must be muchio cheapio in Italy at the mo. Makes me think have they sprayed the bike with it. ?
