The other day when I was tightening my chain I stripped out one of the chain adjustment bolts that goes into the swing arm. I am planning on drilling it out and tapping it for a bigger bolt but was wondering if you guys had some suggestions?

if its just stripped i would loosen the 2 carrier bolts and get a prybar or screwdriver under bolt or even pliers to put some upward pressure on bolt and try and get it loose, then should just be able to clean up threads.

It actually pulled the aluminum threads out so that is not a possibility. How do you think heli coils would work though?

Helicoil should hold up just fine. And quit torquing those bolts down so tight! ;)

Can you post a link of that! I want to try to fix it first cuz I know that the swingarm bolt is going to be a biscuit. I am about to go put the heli coil in right now though.
