After 4 hours on my new bike, I am planning on completely my first oil change tonight. I have heard some absolute horror stories about removing the lower screen bolt. Does anyone have any tips on removing this bolt without stripping out the allen head? I know I need to have the engine warm and some people have said that they "shock" the nut while removing. Does this mean the give a quick and deliberate whack with a hammer on the allen wrench or socket to jar the bolt loose? Any tips would be appreciated!
