stripped threads

While reinstalling the cams in my 954, I managed to strip the cylinder-head threads for one of the cam carrier bolts. Obviously, I will now learn about helicoils.

FWIW, I plan to pull the motor completely out of the frame.

Any suggestions? Size of helicoil to use?

Thanks.

Bob

Re: stripped threads

Go to McMaster-Carr and type helicoil in the search box. When the screen comes up, go to the thread size menu and search for what you need. They should have everything you need, including the STI taps and install tools, plus, their normal shipping method is overnight. Good luck!

Re: stripped threads

I think it's easier to lift the frame and front wheel off the engine / swingarm assembly than to pull the motor out. It will give you complete access to the top of the motor.

There are some very small passageways in the head that lead down to the oil pan. You don't want to drop anything down any of the holes...

Re: stripped threads

you're helicoil dealer should be able tell you what size you need. as long as you know the existing/stock thread and pitch.

I almost had to use one on my frame slider bolt...but the frame slider bolt that ripped out only ripped out half the threads..so I got a longer bolt, no helicoil. but have them for next time!...oh and it will happen. you will fall off! <stolen faster/rainey quote!..just got the new release. sweet!)
