is it just me or does anyone else have trouble with the bottom bolt on the oil filter cover. i've had a couple of yzf's and i've been real careful but still end up damaging the bolt threads. i've run a tap down the hole, blew it out, and still damaged a new bolt. seems like there's always a tight spot. so i cut the bolt a bit shorter and seems ok. why does this bolt need the shoulder anyway?
