Stripped cam bridge stud 250SXF, how bad is it?

Recommended Posts

Everything was going so good until.

The stud that helps hold down the camshaft bearing bridge stripped.

I will order a new one tomorrow with new nuts, but I just wanted to know if there was any tricks at getting the old stud out.

i made a similar mistake too i had the manual and torque wrench but read the torque value wrong and stripped the bridge while torquing the cam cover

first time working on my KTM and read Nm rather than lbs

i got it helicoiled at a machine shop works great
