Question about 2000 BMW R 1100 R
You're going to need to helicoil it. If you can flip the engine upside down. If you can't do that, then apply grease to the drill bit, then the tap when you're cutting the threads. Go very slowly. Alternately snap-on and MAC tools make specially designed thread cutters that compress, go into the hole, then expand outwards to cut the threads. They have little cups to hold the shavings, but cost about $100 each.
