I managed to strip one of the M10x75x1.25mm bolts and inner threads on the front engine hanger after removing and relacing my crash bars. It bolts up to the egine case and holds the radiator cowling in place. Any suggestions on the simplest way to fix this. I don`t currently have any taps or dies. I have ordered a new bolt from Honda but the inner threads will need to be fixed somehow. Any helpful tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

As long as you have the bottom two studs on it all should hold well. The crash guards on the other hand is another concern. You could tap it larger. Some have used metal adhesives or liquid metals to give more for the bolt to hold to.



It would be kind of nice if there were 4 studs up front instead of just the two.
