    Hayes rotors. Pt.2

    So I just tried to remove my rotor and failed miserably. The first bolt I tried to remove striped out. Now what?

    If pro is the opposite of con, then progress is the opposite of congress?

    I did the same. Ended up just drilling it out. It was luck though as the hub it was on was a P.O.S. The rotor will survive but the hub most likely wont unless you are extremely carefull.

    If you use a wide enough bit (one that is the size of the bolt shank) and you start going through the head, as it gets to that "corner" where the underside of the head meets the shank, you will thin it and pop it off in the bit, most likely. Since the rotor is somewhat thick, you'll have part of the bolt sticking out of the hub which can be turned out by hand, pliers, or dremel.

    EZ-out can pull it out, but that's a last resort for me.

    You can cut a slot in the head for a slotted screwdriver.

    You can cut flats on the sides in order to use pliers.

    You can cut the head off and then grab the rest with pliers.

    You can pound in a bigger bit.

    You can epoxy in a bit.

    On the rest of the bolts, make sure you're using a quality t-25 torx bit. Make sure the bit is sitting in straight.
