boatzo Posted November 4, 2007 Share Posted November 4, 2007 I did a valve adjustment and when re-installing the head cover, I stripped the threads in the hole in the head. I think the threads were already damaged as I didn't put much force at all when the bolt turned loose. Had a mild anxiety attack and then regained my composure and went to the NAPPA store. I remembered seeing stuff there for repairing stripped threads. Sure enough they had a Heli Coil kit for that size and thread. The kit was 36 bucks, but what the H. I followed the instructions and the repair went very well and the bike is all back together now. My question is; The bolt holes in the head appear to be in inserts but I am not sure about this? Maybe they are just counter bored and look like inserts? I would appreciate any answers on this. TIA Link to comment
