Probably only a kagillion dollars $$$

Depends on what happened. If it's just a broken bolt it will cost you a new bolt and maybe a tool to get the old one out.

Same thing happened to me on my brothers RMZ, it was nothing, just a new bolt and retap the threads, hopefully you should be fine. Probably just lost the bolt, thats all.

Easy fix, your bolt just probably broke off inside.

Tools needed.

Drill

Easy out

Drill bit to go with that size easy out.

Drill the hole

Thread in the easy out

Turn it back out and the bolt should come right out. :thumbsup:

And you shouldn't have to retap the threads, maybe just run a tap through to clean up the threads.

2 of our riders both on KTM's had their bolt brake off inside within a 3 week period, both used this method with great success.

I bought an easy out with the drill bit at Wal-Mart a while back under $10.00

Should be available at a good hardware store also.

If you can drill a hole, and turn in a bolt than it's a 10 minute job, or you can pay a shop to do the same thing and their going to charge you an hour labor, probably around $70.00 :thumbsup:

Why bother making a post about it then? Why not just take it to the shop monkeys have them bend you over move your thong out of the way and take turns raping your :thumbsup: . Then send you on your way with a new bolt and fixed kick starter.

Im gonna be the one to say it. If you cant fix something that simple then you dont deserve to own a bike. :thumbsup:

This is all in your hands...you can take the advice given to you and fix it yourself because THAT IS the problem unless you arent telling us something. Otherwise you can take it to the dealership...pay an obsurd amount of money to have them laugh at you and do a 5 minute fix. :ride:

dude, seeing how your a newb here, I'm gunna help you out a little bit, before posting a thread, use the search action to see if anyone else has had a similar problem, also, for Christ sake, use spell check, if not your not going to get any help, just alot of flaming from the guys, and a few comments about you being a retard.

as for the bolt problem, your frigging retarded, its a bolt, can you even clean an air filter? do you know where.what an air filter is? how about tranni oil, are you gunna go to the shop and have them do EVERYTHING for you? I guarantee in about 3 weeks this guy is gunna Post a thread, "damn this sport is expensive" and hes gunna complain how much a 5.00 bottle of oil and a size 12 wrench cost him 70.00 at the shop use spell check to you dummy :ride:

oil-5.00

wrench-3.00

hourly shop rate-70.00

flaming a stupid kid who walks into your shop asking for you to change his oil..........priceless

Same thing happened to me, but my kickstarter fell off. If you REALLY dont want to deal with it, just ride around with your kickstarter in your boot.. Thats what I did for the day lol.
