Stripped time sert!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an 09 450f and have just stripped out a time sert that was fitted to the oil drain bolt on the left crank case. I was wondering if it is possible to go to the next size time sert or not? If not can I just tap the hole to an m10 and run a different bolt?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Karl:thumbsup:

where did it strip and what kind of timesert? Did it just pull the timsert out

If the outer threads are still good why not just put another one in? Same size.

Going to a 10 might be a bad idea.

Seriously, you need to get a torque wrench or just chill out on tightening things ive you have striped the threads out of a timesert

How in the heck did you strip the time cert? I cant remember but it seemed like they were suppose to be able to handle 2x's the amount of torque or more.

Try a lighten up on the elbow grease when tighting.

Make sure it is in fact striped. You may hjust striped the bolt threads and the bolt threads are in the time cert threads and just need cleaned out.

Sorry it's actually pulled out of the crank case. The time sert is still good but the threads on the crankcase for the timesert are stuffed.

get yourself an m10 use blue loctite and do not overturn when tightening, the loctite will hold it well

Thanks for your help everyone. I ended up using an m10 sump bolt from a yz125. It went straight in and then I ran some safety wire through it just incase. Seems to be holding up well.

Thanks

I read something recently on a Titan forum the the affect of;

It is a father's first responsibility to teach his son the proper etiquet of torque values!

Second, is the dangers of drugs,

And third, is the hazards of loose women...

Or something to that affect....

The first thing I said to my six year old, (now thirteen), when I put a wrench in his hands was, "Most motorcycles are made of mainly aluminum, and they can be easily damaged by overtightening nuts and bolts..."

I bought him a Snap On Techwrench, just like mine, for his thirteenth birthday and it's all he uses.

Seriously, if you work on bikes, it is a "Must Have" tool.

I mean a torque wrench, not the Techwrench, necessarily

Allow me to disagree, "sort of". Since being a part of this forum, I have seen more small fasteners stripped by people using torque wrenches than by those tightening by hand. Learning the correct feel of a bolt seating, tightening, reaching peak yield-free torque, etc., is extremely valuable, and worth far more than the price of a torque wrench.

Another point is that unless the manual state otherwise for any particular bolt, all torque values are given for clean DRY threads. Oily threads increase the pulling load placed on the threads at any given torque level by 20-25%. How many drain plugs do you think are cleaned and dried and screwed into dry threads in the crankcase? Not 2%, I would bet.

Put the torque wrench down, and learn to "listen" to the machine with your hands.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
