well it completely went today as I was about to set off just puked oil out everywhere and sort of stuck as no garages or machine shops nearby,

KLR600 has developed a electric issue and doesn't run so a tad stuck.

Any machine shop should be able to Helicoil it for you. Just make sure you clean all the swarf out before refitting it though.

Bad luck Sam cry

It might be cheaper for you to buy a Helicoil or Recoil kit from eBay and do it yourself?

I have used covers but can't sort you out one whilst I am still in the USA - sorry.

I have just had the same issue in a small Brazilian village. The std bolts are 22mm long and only interlock with half the threads that are provided in the casings. Not sure how they stripped but I was undoing the bolt in the clutch case, it was not overly tight. For now I have used some gasket sealant, thinner copper washers and as much torque as I dare.

Regarding the suggestion of helicoling do you think if you do this there would be enough surface between the washer and the casing as the hole would be enlarged? Am I overthinking this?

Surprisingly chilled out the issue despite not testing the repair yet!

Thanks DanPXL_20230123_204450766.jpgPXL_20230122_223627194.jpg

John the chances of Dan sourcing a Timesert in rural Brazil are more remote than he is!

Yes Dan there should be enough surface.
If using gasket sealant you might get away without the copper washers to use a bit more thread, but let it go off well before you run it.

Lesson one: Don't work on the bike in the boonies unless you absolutely have to. Sod's Law states the odds of things going wrong vary with distance from available assistance! Good luck chap. Rural Brazil is a chilled place to be stuck (not literally, I bet it's quite hot'n'sticky) Falla Portoguese?

I'm glad you think so Simon, I just wanted a second opinion!

So for the repair has held up for two days, fingers crossed. In the meantime I'll keep asking for the longer bolts as a back up. Those few extra threads and doughty washers would make a nice combination!

I've sadly failed lesson one haha

Everyone here is so so warm, it's strange as they suspect everyone of their neighbouring countries or even regions to do them over but they open themselves to us without hesitation. It's probably due to the beat up old bikes 😆

Thanks for the replies guys!
