Okay I bought all the stuff to install my Zumo 660 on my 2008 GL1800, using a RAM mount on the clutch reservoir. I noticed two screws in the fuse box by the battery for accessories. The Zumo motorcycle cable actually reached the fuse box running the wire under the fairing. I was surprised how relatively easy things were going even though I did scrape up my hands a bit running the wires. I went to loosen the screws on the fuse box to connect the wires and I couldn't get them loose. I started to mess up the philps heads so I stopped. I verified the correct size screw driver. I can't believe these things are in that tight. Does anybody have any good suggestions on how to loosen them.

Thanks,

I think " Rapier " had the same problem on his '10 Wing when he added a volt meter. I'll be seeing him later today and ask him about that issue.

Vice grips did the trick. Man we had to tighten them down a little more after we got them on. I bought the smallest pair I could find at the hardware store. When we started we still didn't think they were going to loosen. They broke free with that loud click. It didn't look like lock tight was on them. I am going to buy some hex heads to replace them.

Thanks for the help.

Using a set of vise grips is exactly how I freed mine up. And yeah, that click when it finally broke loose was a "little concerning"! Sounded like something broke instead of just breaking loose!

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner!
