    Does any of those stripped screw head removers work worth a crap?

    On the side cover for the valves I have a stripped out screw head ... Have a slight clack on the 50 dollar wonder and the forward screw head is stripped out ...

    A )Do you mean you cannot remove intact valve cover screw?
    Or this screw is broken off in engine's cylinder head ?
    C) Or this screw's allen head recessed socket is damaged so as to be unable to turn?
    D) Or is female threads in cylinder head damaged, i.e. stripped?
    E) or something else?

    A photo or better description might help us point you in right direction. Each possible problem has a solution. Certainly a quality EZ-out works if one does the prep work by drilling proper pilot hole which may be very difficult with cylinder on bike. We can help depending on the problem.

    If it is just the bolt head stripped out and not the threads, try some Vice Grips then replace it with a new Allen head bolt.

    Good call asking for clarification Fred.

    I bought a very small pair of vice grips. They can lock on to a pretty small screw head. They have saved me several times.

    Those small vice grips I have would grab that screw head. I would go strait in, not try to get in from the side. Lock them as tight as possible and turn them with the pliers.

    OK, picture really helps, thanks.
    Valve lash adjustments are actually made elsewhere than under this cover, never been in there,sorry. However if you must get in there, or wish to replace bad screw this might help; Your screw looks like common #2 Phillips head, not JIS ( JapaneseIndustrial Standard) like some other cross-bit screws on bike. Try fitting your best #2 phillips screwdriver,( or whatever fits damaged screw head best) then combine a twisting motion with light to medium tapping with a hammer on end of screwdriver. Often this hammering allows a better bite with tool while impact force helps loosen screw. Or use a impact screwdriver if you have one. Stock fastener in this location on my bike is a hex headed bolt. Good luck.
    If adjusting your noisy valves is your real goal you can forget about this screwed up screw and follow valve adjusting threads found on this forum; use search engine or someone else may post an easy link for you to use.
    I really like your fixing up the $50 wonder, what a good find.

    manual impact got those right off for me, probably woudl still work if it isn't too buggered. if not i'd cut a large slit in it with a dremel and hope a regular flat screwdriver woudl get it, or even better a flat head manual impact.
