Sheared tank screws

Hey guys,
I recently bought a fe390 and I am loving it, coming from a cr250. So nice to ride. I'm trying to tidy up bits and bobs that the previous owner was a bit heavy handed with. One thing that I'm trying to not only figure out how they did it, but how to get them out. 2 panel bolts/screws on the side of the tank/Airbox that hold on the main side panels are sheared, below flush🙄 any tips? Cheers from Scotland

Your kidding?

They usually strip, not break.

You may have to try and drill a small hole in them and use an easy out.

Yeah, been a few bits left me curious as to how it's been done! Haha
That's what I was afraid of��

I'll be as careful as I can but still brave poking a drill around haha I was hoping there might have been something obvious I was missing!
I can't seem to find a good place to nuy the screws either

If you have a dremel tool use the small cutoff wheel to grind a slot in the screw careful not to hit the tank. It’s OK to hit the insert but just a little!! It should come out using a slotted screwdriver. Good luck

Well, that was the most uncomfortable bit of free hand drilling i've done, but it was a success!! They were a good bit under flush, so i'd no choice but to drill.. offered up the dremel but it wouldn't get close
Thanks from Alan

That must have been after a crash! As long as the tank is fine, they are a pain if ruined...
