Previous owner had changed a pinch bolt on the fork lower ,I changed it for a OEM bolt ,unfortunaltly all the thread came out with it ,doh! . But I found a cheap helicoil kit on eBay item 262117486406 £7.49 Worked really well and saved me loads in workshop fees .

I also have a striped pinch on the fork... stupid shop I naively trusted to rebuild the forks...long story. Anyway, not completely done for, anytime I take it out I ensure red locktite keeps it in place... holding up for now, but I know it has to get drilled and tapped soon...

BTW, other one is still great or I wouldn't risk it. I check it anytime I check tyre pressures..has always stayed snug and in

If you have to glue the pinch bolt in with loctite, then it's not really performing any useful function i.e. pinching the axle. A helicoil kit is pretty cheap to buy and easy to install.
