Stripped thread
 
Hi All--

I've lost a the bolt from the left-hand grip-frame (part # 32109-1131 on Ronyer's exploded diagram here):

http://fiche.ronayers.com/Index.cfm/...Frame_Fittings

Looked at it with a flashlight and the threads look stripped in there. This is my first metric bike--will chasing it with a tap do? And what size tap do I need (the bolt is part # 132A)?

Or is there some other easier way? And is there a good place to order the bolt online?

Thanks,

Jeff

The bolt is an M7 metric, Ron Ayers sells it for $2.35 and probably $10.00 shipping. You can buy a stainless bolt that will look good at Ace Hardware, buy 4 and make them all look the same and no one will know. You can probably get all 4 at Ace for lesss than $5.00. You can chase the hole with a Tap, should be pretty easy to do.

I put saddlebag brackets on my bike and replaced these bolts with ones from Ace, they look great.
