Stacks in 07 Airbox screw stripped .. help?

Last time I didn't have time to change plugs so I got a mechanic at a dealership to do my plugs...

This time, I had time to do it myself and got some new NGK Iridium plugs the other day.
So after work I took all my fairing off my 2007 1000RR and got as far as the upper air box.



As I was about to unscrew the velocity stacks on the right hand side when I notice that one of the screws had previously been stripped... as you can see at the red arrow.



That put me at a grinding halt this afternoon putting in the plugs...

Any solution for getting that screw out...? such a tight spot

Get the drill and a drill bit about the same size as the head of the screw and drill the head off. Once you have done that take the stack off and you will be able to grab the screw with some vise grips and remove it. Just be careful when drilling.

That's very frustrating mid project. I picked up a screw extractor kit and that has worked for me well.

whenever you go to loosen your airbox screws, you need to MAKE SURE that you have the correct size screwdriver and always put more force than normal on each screw to break it loose. if you strip one of them completely out, it sucks. make sure to buy new screws to go in before installing them again. we can get them, or you can grab them locally.

what i bought was a craftsman bolt extractor set. it will grab on to the top portion the screw.

also, if you get yourself a larger than normal phillips head bit/screwdriver you can use the manual impact method first. get one person to hold down on the screwdriver while turning it counter clockwise to loosen it up. you hit the top of the screwdriver with a hammer/mallet. if that doesnt work, try this.

boy that looks about the right size bit.. i think u might just have to go just a lil deeper. u have to drill down just below the head of bolt. then the head of the bolt should come free

remember, these are Japanese spec screws... and you're likey to have a SAE (american) screwdriver.

one trick is to take the close fitting SAE screwdriver, and file the tip down so it fits snug in the JA screws.

another tip is to use a dab of valve lapping compound or toothpaste on the screwtip... doing this increases the 'grip' the screwdriver has on the screw.
