Thankyou for that Thoppa, it is because of it's position that I am reluctant to try anything. Leaving it to someone else seems the option for me.

Aha. I did wonder what a cross-head was doing as a clamp bolt - it would be far too easy to round off the slots with the torque needed. It's quite hard to round out an allen head though, and I assume the head of the bolt is recessed too, so you can't get mole grips on it, or use an angle grinder to cut a slot in it. So you can try an imperial oversized allen key or a torx key, and hammer in the key. I'm guessing you don't have a screw extractor tool, or welding gear, or metal-based epoxy glue so those aren't options. Like you, I wouldn't bother trying to drill it out - it'll still be very hard to remove - and repairing the shape using needle files will take too long too.

I replaced that allen bolt with a regular raised hex head some time ago, but that was because the threads in the fork had been damaged - it didn't feel good when tightening it up - like it was ready to turn too easily, not tighten up. So I used an extra long bolt to reach into deeper threads, with a thick washer under the head. The washer helps distribute the load - essential because the recess in the fork for the allen head creates a gap under the washer, so the washer has uneven load across it - hence it needs to be thick steel. Without the thick washer, the bolt's head would experience the uneven load and would be more likely to fail in time. Stress will concentrate around the base of the head, and it will work on microscopic cracks, leading to catastrophic failure - the head will shear off. With the washer, it should be fine for the load, but it's not ideal. If I could get a longer allen bolt I would.

Fiddle II 125 / Re: Variator Parts

Umm yeah. Not all sliders are triangular.
That's just the pic that pulled up on that site off google for a Fiddle II.  Maybe for the 50.  I dunno.  I've never taken apart a Fiddle II variator.

You could also google the P/N.  22132-KN2-900-A
http://www.symcanada.com/techSpecs.html is a useful link to find that.  It's an old set of catalogs and the fiddle seems to be the fiddle II as luck would have it.
Found this checking with that.

There were a few others too, so that may be your answer..
And Yes... I am aware of DP "Sliders" for replacing your rollers.  They look a lot different from that.  I use them.

Hi,

You can also try large mole grips / locking pliers / grip wrench - this has worked for me sometimes - if you don't want to wait. 

And I've also used an angle grinder to cut a slot in the head of the bolt so I can use a slot-head screwdriver on it however, this can go horribly wrong (head shears off if the slot goes too deep) and from what you say, there probably isn't clear access for the angle grinder.

Good plan, & dang what a PITA.

As my Silverwing is in for repairs i have been using the Cruisym. I noticed the front tyre is down to two millimeters of tread, i usually change tyres at this point. To remove the front wheel there is a pinch bolt that secures the main shaft in place. This bolt is a phillips head bolt , despite having a really good fit in the bolt it rounded off, and i could not undo the bolt. I know i could drill the bolt and use screw extractors but, i find it difficult to bend and get to the bolt. I went to my local Sym agent. The earliest they can do the job is ninth of August. Every time i come across Phillips head bolts i seem to have this problem. I will ask for an ordinary bolt to be put in for future use.

No, they are alternatives to rollers. The sliders are the three triangular rubbers that fit onto the metal cage at the back of the variator

HD200 / Re: WON LAWSUIT for gas tank leak against MIKE HICKMAN SYM HD200 EVO!!!
« Last post by Bootscoot on June 30, 2021, 05:50:00 PM »
My gas cap leaked on my 2015. I drained the tank Then carved away the plastic inside of the filler neck. Used a shopvac with a piece of auto heater hose to remove the debris. Reconnect the fuel line. A marine gas cap and filler neck fits inside the neck of the fuel tank. I drilled a hole through the tanks neck and the marine neck. Used a small nut and bolt to hold it in place. Hooped the neck with JB Weld to bond and prevent any leaks. Let it sit for 24 hours. Bravo!! Cost was 25 bucks problem solved
