R1100 Valve cover bolt removal

Post by ibjman » Wed Dec 18, 2013 4:19 pm

I need to take the valve cover bolts/sleeves combination out of a damaged cover.
How do you get these rubber sleeves (and bolts) loose from the cover?
Thanks, Ibjman

Number 9?

I'm pretty sure they just slip in. After being in there a long time they just don't come out easily. It's been quite a few years since I replaced a valve cover, but I'm pretty sure the inserts were just stuck on there from heat and time.
MS - out

Thanks. You are correct......the rubber sleeves just "pop" out from the inside with the bolts attached.....
