Illustration for article titled Ugh

Bought R6 front brakes for my FZR600 since they’re 10 years newer and a direct bolt on. When I put them on I realized the lines were on at the wrong angle, so I’d have to bend them pretty sharply to be able to line up the brackets that attach them to the forks. No big deal, I’ll just loosed the banjo bolts and rotate them around, I thought. Except the bolts are 100% seized and the heads are completely stripped and nothing I do will make them budge. So now I’m getting a refund and looking for better ones once again...
