well crap. i got the drain bolt off on the right side just fine. but the bolt on the left just spins in place. i also can hear the spring moving around inside the housing when i turn the bolt. even tighting it just spins. the alen head is not damaged so the 6mm alen tool still works. any idea's?

I had this same issue a few months back with my 82 GL500. I ended up having to put a 2' piece of re-bar down the fork and clamping in place with a large woodworking bar clamp pulling the bar into the fork. A few whacks with an 18v impact gun and those puppies came right out. A dowel would also probably work, but I had the re-bar laying around.
