Trying to get a look at my air cleaners on my new to me CB350.

The 10mm bolt (with the nipple part the side cover attaches to) just spins when I try to loosen it.

I then took the other 10mm bolt out that attaches the whole assemby, along with the clamp that attaches the rubber boot to the carb. Went to pull off the entire air cleaner, but it's stuck pretty good to some tube under the battery? Was hoping to get it off to take a look at the back side to see what was spinning on the first 10mm/nipple bolt.

Guys, is there a trick to this? Didn't want to start strong arming this thing if its something simple.

Yes... Hold BOTH brass "nipples" simultaneously (A wrench on each, spin one).... They are opposite ends of the same bolt... Only one "nut" needs to come off.... Steve

Did take of the 10mm bolt that holds the aircleaner at the top of the frame? The nipple will spin occassionally but it's one solid rod through the bottom of the battery tray. If one keeps spinning then eventually one of the two will come loose and you can remove that aircleaner. It sounds like you haven't removed the bolt at the top of the aircleaner where it attaches to the frame.
