    Sounds like a familiar story Bill.

    I had to pull the front caliper off my new to me 2013 ZX 14 R in order to get the front wheel off for a new tire.

    The front wheel hadn't been removed for about four years (since the last set of tires was installed).

    I ran into the same problem you did.

    Stripped out the caliper bolt!

    I tried the same methods as you did to no avail. I even tried drilling it out without success.

    Ended up having to do this:

    Wasn't pretty but it was the only way I could get the bolt out.


    I made sure to put some anti seize on ALL of the bolts before I reinstalled them.

    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

      That's a last ditch effort ....

        It definitely was.

        I was just happy that I could get get it removed even with that drastic measure.

        Otherwise do't know what I would have done.

        Definitely fooked for sure!

                Found them on eBay, from the UK if I remember right.

                BTW, I also stripped one of the rotor bolts. KHI likes to use red loctite to make sure things don't fall out. I sometimes believe they go beyond torque values when tightening.

                I should have it all back together today sometime (7:40am here right now).

                  Job done! All went together well.

                  On the bike, brake fluid added and bled:

                  Test ride: did some hard braking to bed in the new pads against the new rotor. Braking gradually got better.
                  Overall happy with the end results.


                  Rotor I used: here.

                      Yep, looking good. I guess I'm giving those a shot too. Damn, and I'd gone for over 2 months without spending any
                      money on bike stuff, I recon that's OK though.
