Help please with stripped trans oil hole
« on: February 25, 2020, 05:34:11 AM »
Hi all, figured I'd post here for advice. 

My son stripped his trans oil hole on his '15 KX100 (same casings as KX85)

The bolt is snug but leaking for sure.

Ordered a new bolt and a 10mm/1.5 thread chaser/restorer. Hopefully those work.

If not, does anyone know if there's room to tap it to 12mm? I heard a helicoil/timesert aren't the best ideas there and hoping I don't need new casings obviously.

I saw pics on eBay of used casings p/n 14001-0681, to see what's inside and it's so hard to tell. The inside of the hole is definitely close to something but do I have 1mm all the way around to drill?

Thanks in advance!

That sucks You can try that but Depending on whats on the backside if you have room to use this it is the best way to fix threads., If you look up Tom Morgan racing He fixes that unfortunately you have to send it out
