Whats with the security bolt on the left side cover? Did you guys get a special allen key in their toolkit for this? I didn't.

its a security bolt...you have to get a security type allen head for it
I guess they put it there because of needing a key to open the seat
compartment.

Yeah. I assumed that was the reason why it's there. But why not give the key? Stupid move. Now I have to go to the store and try to find the right one. It's not like I can take it off and into the store to test different ones.

Sorry. Things like this really bug me:(

I go to AutoZone for this kind of thing. They'll usually bring the tools out to the bike and try it until they find one that fits. It may cost a little more, but you're also getting service and convenience along with it.

its just a pain when you tear into it. Ive taken mine off several times
so it just got changed out. We do have the tool that has several sized
safety torx heads but......I guess I tear mine apart too often.

Agreed, It is the only weird fastener on the bike for a reason. Make sense!

Cool, My Son has a Raptor 660R also. He Had a blaster before that. He wants me to give him my Stryker and then I could get the New Customized Stratoliner at the dealership. My wife will never let this happen though LMAO

The stratoliner that the dealer has is a new 2009 damaged one that he modded for himself, but is now going to sell it instead. If it is still there next time I go I will take a pic for yall.

I agree, that strat is cool, i played around with buying one, but when i saw the stryker for the first time i just could not say no. Talking about blasters brings me back to childhood, i had one.
