I have to take the studs off of the cylinder of my 95 rm 250 and i'm really having a hard time. Does anyone have any tricks or know of a way to easily remove them? I've tried locking pliers and regular pump pliers and the studs won't move. Does anyone know if they could be reverse thead? Thanks for the help

Never had to remove cylinder studs, but one way to remove a stubborn stud is to use two nuts. Thread both partway down the stud, then spin the bottom one counterclockwise until it snugs into the top nut. The use your wrench only on the bottom nut to spin the stud out. The top nut will keep the bottom one from turning until the stud starts to spin.

The double-nut method is the way I remove studs, as well. It works fine, just don't tighten the nuts against each other so hard that you damage the threads.
