Same model only 10k miles. Got it from first owner who didnt use it much. Its been repainted once had stainless fasteners so it looks quite mint but still has some fun surprises in store . . . Unbolted the front brake calipers for the first time the other day to change tyres. all four threads on the fork sliders have been helicoiled and part of the the inserts came out on the stainless caliper bolts. I reckon they are m10 x 1.5. I checked the helicoil topic already - so what I'm asking is: is it OK to replace broken helicoils with same or something better? Will I have to go up a size to M11 x 1.5? how do i get the remains of broken helicoils out? ,Heli coil makes a removal tool,a pointed device, which digs into the coil so you can unwind it. You can probably improvise. Just remember the coil has to be unwound to remove. You may be best off coming from the back side to unwind?? As long as the threads are still good I don't see any reason why you can't recoil with the same size insert?? You may want to use anti sieze on the fastener to keep from siezing again. I wouldn't use anything on the heli coil insert prior to install. Heli coil also makes a coil that locks in place after first time use.,,,

I have a 2010 V7 Guzzi. Great bike except the kickstand falls down while driving which opens a safety kill switch. I brought it back once and the owner of the shop traded it out with another kickstand from...


At this age it should still be under warranty, and even if it isn't, it is strange that it fails after being serviced. Ring the service place/dealer and ask them what they did to it as it was fine before they serviced it. That should make them collect the bike and fix it for you.

Good Luck

Third gear very difficult to engage!!! apart from adjustment of clutch why would this occur/ bike has only done 12,000 year of manufacture 2000.


You should see the manufacturers workshop manager. If worth his salt, he will advise you. It is more than likely a bent or broken part inside the gearbox and they will be most qualified to repair.

Ground Circuits Using a DVOM, touch negative voltmeter lead to a good ground. Touch positive voltmeter lead to each ground terminal. With vehicle running, voltmeter should indicate less than one volt. If reading is greater than one volt, check for open, corrosion and loose connection on ground lead.

Need to rebild to repair auto box from mitsubishi gto 1991 3000cc


Are you a qualified experienced transmission rebuilder ? Automatic transmissions are NOT for playing with. It takes many years to be able to proficiently repair one, do you have a manual ? Do you have specialist tools, guages, test plates, piston spring compressors ? I have been rebuilding transmissions for nearly 35 years, i was an aprentice and went to college to be a mechanic, and been in the trade for many many years, so, please DONT take offence at this, but if you have a transmission problem, go to a transmission specialist .

Suzuki drain bolt oil problem !


As for where the oil drain plug is, remove the four bolts that hold the bottom fairing in place and it should be easy to spot.

As for the repair it depends. How bad are the threads damaged?
If it's a single thread and there are at least 5 to 6 threads total, you might be able to run a tap (same size) through the hole and be fine. Just make sure you use a good flexible washer/gasket to reduce the need to torque the plug down.

If it's worse then you have two choices. The first is to carefully drill out the hole and retap it bigger. The second is the same as the first except that tap size will be a bit bigger and you will be inserting whats called a HeliCoil. Follow the link for more info on HeliCoil.

I have used HeliCoils in engine blocks for years and never had a problem.
Hope this helps

Steering knuckle - the treads where stripped for caliper bolt


Yes, that can be repaired. You will need a helicoil kit, available at most parts stores. generally the kit includes a drill bit, about ten coils and an install tool. If I remember correctly it is about $30. Your other option is to find a knuckle in a local scrapyard (likely the same price as the helicoil kit)

1997 ford expedition spark plug blow, its all strip. its an aluim head. is there a quick fix or do i have to replace the whole freaking heads?


The Spark Plug hole can be repaired. The professional way is to remove the cylinder head, and use a repair such as a Helicoil.

The spark plug hole is tapped out to a larger thread size, with a special Helicoil tap. Loctite or some other form of thread locker is applied, and the Helicoil is inserted.

Helicoil's are made of Stainless Steel, and are much better than the original material used in the cylinder head. (Be it cast iron or aluminum)
Drag racers use Helicoil's in their engines.

Tapping out the spark plug hole for a Helicoil, or using a special thread chaser, is NOT a good idea, while the cylinder head is still installed on the engine.
The tap creates chips of metal which fall down into the cylinder.
Using a vacuum to try to alleviate the chips, falls short of a good repair job.
