You can most likely find this hand impact driver(whack with a hammer) and bit locally I'm sure...I'd file the end of the hex to get a deep seat and give it a go...add them right to your tool kit...Good luck with it all...

a bit brutal, but i'd try a small (bluntish) chisel ( 6mm tip )or punch, make sure it has a good start, 45degs, and a couple of sharp blows may free it, ive managed to loosen a rounded caliper bolt this way at the roadside before and many old style Japanese casing screws........obviously you dont want to be pounding away here, but a couple of blows may do it

I like the less intensive options, first I will whack it then i'll look at heating, welding, plutonium etc

Thanks fella and everyone for your help

Done this before on the Scram - first time I used Wal's method (small chisel and a persuader), second time I'd got a Dremel, so I cut a line in the top of the bolt and then went to town with the impact driver.

Since you're still in the trip planning stages and have no ride report to post, your thread has been moved to the Trip Planning forum. Once the trip is underway, start a new thread in Ride Reports and dazzle us! Good luck with your great adventure

Here is the set up I had on my trip with the Rotopax.



There are two in there - one for water on the rear rack and one for petrol at the LHS. These thing are bullet proof so have no fear about mounting them anywhere. I guess you will end up having them on the side of you paniers?

One note of caution - the filler spout is a PITA. They sell an optional one which is hopefully better. Test it and you will see what I mean.

Best of luck!

(And post up the new thread link to the RR once you start it).

I dig your set up regarding the soft racks and the locations of the fuel.

I was reading you're post and a had serious blonde moment, I was like Pain.. In... OHHHH. Another Americanism I can take back to the empire.

Thanks ever-so much on the hook up on the facebook pages, much appreciated

Hey the screen I have on my scram is the Dart Fly-screen, it works perfectly with ruining the looks of the bike too much, I would have replied sooner but I couldn't remember the name of my screen for the life of me so I sifted through my receipts and found the name that way

Looking forward to your ride report.
Hit me up if you get into Olympia Washington. I have a shop with tools and your welcome to make any adjustments you may need. I am about 80 or so miles from the ferry that will get you to Vancouver and close to the Olympic Mountains. ..30 miles to the local triumph dealer. Tent space for sure, if I keep ambitious guest room in the shop but no promises yet.
Let me know.

There is an dual sport bike version and many RRs here in ADV, sorter and easier that the TAT. Currently toying with the idea of selling the DR and buying a Triumph XC800. Recently sold my Speed Triple and need something shinny in the garage to replace her
