OlGeezer Posted March 29, 2007 Share Posted March 29, 2007 On my return from my weekend jaunt, I sheared off the lower bolt on the rear shock. Don't ask me how. It failed in double shear which means the bolt ended up in three pieces. One piece fell out, the middle piece came out with the shock and the third piece is still in the threaded fitting in the swing arm. I know there are thread extractors, but I believe I need to drill a pilot hole. If that's true, how do I get it aligned properly? There are things in the way. If that's not true, how could I extract the bolt? Well, it was running for a little bit, anyway. Got nearly 2k on her between the maladies, and this time I wasn't stranded. Thats not too bad. TIA, Bill Link to comment
