HELP!!! need advce!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I don’t know how i did it but I have successfully stripped out the brake pedal bolt... where it goes into the frame and gets tight...

Can anyone give me any suggestions as to how to remedy this problem? Will a helicoil work for this? THANKS

I dont know how i did it, I just started to tighten it then it kept going, it wasn't cross threaded or anything... just the aluminum gave way!

The best fix is to drill it larger and install a threaded insert. I have found them at places like Fastenall.

All my friends have at some time, stripped the fork guard 6mm bolts. I purchased a bike with same problem-found the correct insert, worked great!
