Had an issue recently where i was riding and the goddamn engine bolt was coming out. Nut worked its way off the other side and when i went to get on the back brake there was a giant bolt covering it so when i mashed down - no brake:eek2:. (My bad on the pre ride check!) Anyway, pulled over and tried to push the bolt back in about and inch and i think it may have tweaked a little and bent just slightly cause when i tried to turn it to help it back in it was really difficult for half a turn and then easy for half. You coulda tweaked that bolt somehow.

I just installed the Shogun sliders on my 06. It was a leap of faith to simply remove the long engine bolt, but it came out pretty easily. If needed take a lone, slightly thinner punch, bolt, what ever, and push from the other side.

After reading the directions, iirc, I think I decided to put the new single threaded rod in with the other bolts still tight, then did the other two bolts. It was a pita to tighten the new nut because the head was too big. So I tightened it, centered it, and tightend the other one to the torque setting.

If needed take it back apart and try the original bolts.

I did not need to do it, but it seems that you can jack the engine back into alignment.
