Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing
I have stripped the nut on my oil filter cap and can't remove it plus my rear tire is flat and I'm in the process of removing it but can't remove the axle bolt. I don't want to strip it like I did the filter bolt. Right now I have it saturated with wd-40. I'm not sure if it's been oxidized/ rusted together but or what. Is there any remedies or suggestions on how to proceed on these frustrating removals?
Thanks in advance
I would tap the nut with a hammer then use vice grips on the filter nut. I would ensure the corect wrench is used on the axle bolt and give it a good tap as well before wrenching it off. Try the folks at
I use em for my 750 and 650 honda.

Very common issue with the small oil filter cap bolt--you can get a 15mm one off ebay for a few dollars. To get the one off that's stripped, you might try the vice grips, but I'd bet the vice grips contintue to turn that nut into a small spindle before breaking off. IF that does happen, just drill into the end of the nut, it's hollow just a short bit inside, then you can use a larger EZOut on it.
Other things to try--quick spots of heat, like a small pencil torch or propane torch, just on the filter cover--not long, only a couple seconds--the aluminum heats quick and then starts heating the bolt, yu don't want the bolt to heat.
Another trick, try to TIGHTEN the bolt, if you can seat it another 32nd of a turn, that'll break the threads free.

The axle bold should be tapered at the nut end, if so put a box wrench on the nut and while tapping gently on the end use the wrench to loosen.
