Hello all, I'm trying to check the valves on my 78 GL1000 and I can't get the cap off the stator cover so I can spin the motor over by hand, I used a 17mm and a lot of force but I'm afraid I'm going to strip it, I also don't want to use heat because of the rubber seal. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've rounded off the nut in the past, try using a 6 point wrench on it. you can get some purchase on it from underneath too, or just try tapping it around with a sharp drift.

Not genuine parts, but you can get a new cap with an O ring on eBay for $5.99, free shipping.

Hold socket tight to cap then smack the ratchet handle or breaker bar with a hammer should do it @ shock and awe :<)
