I am assuming you are talking about the bolts in the frame for the water bottle holders. You can take it to the bike shop and have them install a "Rivnut." This entails drilling out the frame boss that is stripped, and installing a Rivnut with is a rivet that is threaded for a specific size, in this case, the same size for cage bolts. Or you could order the kit and tools yourself, but then you would be left with extra Rivnuts and tools.

Lefty shock axel bolt removal

I would need more information, but it sounds like that the bolt is most likely stripped and in need of replacement. Your local Cannondale dealer should be able to get one of those for you.

Spark plugs are not screwing back in

Well that sucks so either you bought the wrong plugs or when you removed the old plugs the threads from the heads came with them. You'll have to put heli coils in the heads. Remember to use antiseize on the threads next time. always use the antiseize, this will be an expensive lesson if you stripped them.

Pedal threads r stripped . How do I remove the crank to replace it?

You might decide to get ther threads repaired. Sometimes just a new pedal ( with a little longer thread) will tighten up just fine. Realise that theirs a left and right pedal and if you try to put them on the wrong side you'll have problems. If the right side is the only one that's damaged you can have ( or do it yourself) a thread insert installed. If it can be repaired this way it'll be alot cheaper than crank replacement. The bike needs to be valuable to warrent replacing the crank as you can get to the value of the bike quickly doing a crank repair. ( if it's a cheap ( wally world) bike you just need to go on down to wally world and get another bike. I'd chack to see if you can get the parts to fix the bike before i'd take it apart. Most machine shops will fix the threads without taking any thing apart. Get you some good pedals and just have a welder tack weld them so they'll stay on. and ride on.

I have an old Cannondale Bad Boy (10 yr old roughly) The bottom bracket needs lubricating is this possible or do I need to buy a new one?

Depends what type BB it is. 10 years, I'd replace it with a cartridge BB if it's not one already. Just tighten it up, install the cranks, no muss no fuss like there is with loose- or ring-mounted balls. Consult with a dealer to get the right width for your frame and cranks.

Change needle?

If you are asking if you should change the needle, yes. My experience is that a dull needle will cause problems long before it breaks. If you are asking how to change the needle, then: first raise and then remove the foot (not really necessary but makes it easier) If possible do not remove the screw that secures the foot. Next loosen the small screw that secures the old/broken needle in place. Remove the old/broken needle, paying close attention to the needle's alignment (which direction is the flat side of the shaft facing) Insert the new needle with the same alignment as the old needle. Tighten the small securing screw, replace the foot and tighten the screw that holds it in place. Rotate the machine by hand to insure that the new needle does not strike or rub against anything during it's full cycle. Sometimes a broken needle will indicate a timing problem or a incorrectly installed bobbin holder. Re-thread the machine and check for proper operation.

1998 v star classic 650 - leaking oil right side near bottom.... is there a gasget in there? common?

G'day, you are right on the money. Yes there is a gasket here. It is the clutch cover gasket.Order a new one & change it & you should be right. Watch for any stripped threads on the cover screws. It's not uncommon for the alloy thread from the case to "pull out".I loosen the screws first,then try tighten them to make sure all is ok.Then I loosen again & remove the cover. If you do have a pulled thread, then the repair is to install a helicoil or recoil insert. You can get these from a tool or engineering shop.NEVER use screwdrivers to pry off the cover-you will damage the mating surface. When you have the cover off, remove ALL old gasket & check the mating surfaces for damage.You don't have to use any sealant on the new gasket IF the surfaces are OK.If you must use sealant use it spareingly.
Good luck & just let me know if you have any problems.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli.

Broken/stripped rear lugs on pacifica that needs to be replaced

From Experience trying to clean the threads up usually results in just stripping the stud the rest of the way. Depending on how the car is set up (i.e. rear disc or rear drum brakes) replaceing the lug studs is fairly straight forward. All you need to do is remove the tire, remove either the brake drum or disc, and determine if you have room for removal and reinsertion of a new stud. If not determine what has to be removed to give you that room. Then comes the fun part. Take about a 2-3lb. hammer and knock the old one out. Yes, they just knock out. Then to instal the new one just set it in the hub where the old one came out, place a few washers that will fit over the knurled part at the base on the stud and the new lug nut and tighten it down til the back side if flat against the hub. Then just reinstall previously removed parts and you are done.
