possibly, but doubtful.. I tried a 5.5mm allen and it seems waay to big..

Hadn't thought about turning it into a screw though.. may give that a try.. I'm less likely to permanently attach it to the case with a dremel than I am with JB Weld..

Stay sleazy,

Normally I'm all about any and every excuse to buy new tools, but as of late, money has been really tight so I'm trying to be more responsible and not spend if I don't have to.. part of my hurry to get this bike running again is I imagine filling a 4 gallon motorcycle tank with regular gas will be cheaper than a 19 gallon Challenger tank with premium ;)
