    Givi Crash Bars

    Hi Everyone
    I was trying to fit a set of Givi crash bars to my 2012 CT 1200 X and had awful trouble getting of the bottom engine bolts out to the extent I have stopped in case I snapped them. Question is are they put in with Lock Tight from Honda or are they just full of crap coming up from the road and do I need a Impactor Gun to remove them? Thank you in advance

    I've only removed top engine mounts, not lower.  No factory locktite on my 2017 model.  I do recall the discussion below, however.  Be careful!

    Thanks to everyone that replied I got a 2ft breaker bar and they came out with a bit of force. They seemed to be full of crud from the road. Anyway just need to put the bars on now 🤣
