My 1981 yz250 needs new fork seals so I took the forks off of the bike. and theres a hex bolt on the very bottom of each fork I'm supposed to take out, so I put the fork in a vise and started turning my 10mm hex wrench and yes you guessed it the hex bolt goes around in circles along with whatever there is in the tube holding it . I guess each hex bolt has loc-tite on it(which is normal). Is there a trick to get these hex bolts out my repair manual says if you cannot remove hex bolts to bring it your local yamaha dealer well I am trying to save myself a 100 mile local dealer trip.
