    OK I have a 2009 CrossBones want to change speedo to the speedo/tach model, trouble is the acorn nut just spins, guess the one under the dash is loose...any help what to do would be nice.

    Try pulling up with some pressure while turning it, putting it in a bind may help

    Well bolt never broke but lifted enough to get a hacksaw blade under the nut. Cut the bolt and found that the spot where the head of the bolt goes is now lifted, thinging old dash was good enough :(......have a headache now and need a beer:s
