You can often use on old bolt - lock a couple of nuts on the thread then put the bolt head in the allen key-hole and use that as a wrench

Done a bit more to my W - fitted a Baglux thingy that I got with the bike & yet another different set of bars (Renthal).......

.... also removed the hideously huge rear light assembly and fitted a genuine old skool rear light I got at an Autojumble - just cleaned it up & sprayed it.....

Not 100% sure I like the new (old) light, so may go for an old BSA/Triumph ally unit ? Whatever, looks much better without the "clutter" !
