Helicoil??
 
:helpsmilie:Hi guys, I need to get a helicoil fitted as one of the clutch cover bolts on my xt600 has given up. Failing that I need to get it drilled out and tapped for a bigger bolt.
Need a shop in either Pavlodar (Kazakhstan) or maybe Barnaul ( Russia) any help would be greatly appreciated.

Barnaul felt like a reasonably big city, and they had a pretty big hardware/tradesmans shop there (afraid I can't give directions, but it was a few streets west of the main street in town). Undoubtedly they would have helicoils. So if you can make it there and ask around you will find something to fix it.

Most likely you will also find a fellow biker who will invite you home and insist you stay and eat while he fixes your bike. That tends to happen in Russia...

Stripped 6mm bolts
 
Just some info on the problem of stripped bolts. the 6mm stripped out hole is ready for a 1/4 by 20 SAE tap and then a 1/4 20 bolt/allen bolt will fit right in. Depends on the availability of SAE bolts but sometime is much simpler of a fix. Beware boring out the hole too big for a thread insert.

When you say clutch cover do you mean pressure plate or the external cover of the engine? You can quite often make a temporary repair by fitting a longer bolt. You will no doubt find a suitable one somewhere on the bike. If its the external cover and there is no oil leakage and the bolt is not next to the clutch release arm i would not worry too much.

thanks
 
Thankyou for the info guys much apreciated as usual but it doesn't matter now as the back wheel has just fallen to bits. 55km from nowhere. In the middle of an electrical storm. We have some laughs don't we?
