How do I remove this rear 90 degree breather bolt? It hits the frame. Tried jacking the engine in the frame. Still not enough clearance. Maybe Iím just a bozo and itís something simple. Ideas?

grab the nipple and twist to remove from the bolt. That little piece is pressed into the square bolt.

Haha too bad I didn't know that before. I removed mine with the assistance of a hacksaw, and replaced it with banjo bolt style breathers.

Well I learned something today.

Back in the day, when these bikes were being built, we were foolish enough to have to install the breather bolt before the frame was installed due to this issue...
