Question about 1993 Moto Guzzi Quota 1000
After 7 years of faithful service I traded in my 1993 guzzi for another 1991 guzzi
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.,,,
