    GRIND A BIT OFF THE FRONT OF YOUR T6 DRIVER TO MAKE IT SHARPER,IT SHOULD BITE THEN.

    which frame? if it is bad, use a hex driver that is slightly larger and jam it in to get bite, you can use foil or thin tape over the tip of the torx as well (or get a t7), or if all else fails, do the brute force method...

    pry the frame open...will pull the threads off the screw because the Ti alloy the frame is made of if way stronger than the soft crap stainless screws they use, plus the threads are tiny...be careful not to mar the frame, but it works. or be brave and drill it and hope you don't trash the frame

    no. will crack because it is brittle. jb weld maybe, but again, so small, may not even get the bite you need...

    probably not on an R1...use a small smooth flat screwdriver to work between the pieces and gently pry as close to the screw as possible...
