    R75/5 Leaking fork tube at fork brace

    Has anyone repaired a fork oil leak at fork brace bolts ?

    Thread is stripped in fork tube.

    Can not find M13 Helicoil kit.

    Any suggestions?

    Just looked at fische.

    The stud is M8 x25.

    I also see on the picture of the SS stud that the thread lengths are not the same on either side of the center non-threaded portion.

    Probably why I stripped it in an attempt to have the same amount of thread showing through the nut when installed.

    I think they make M8 heilicoils.

    I still wonder if I will get a good seal when the helicoil is set. I suppose red Locktite will do the trick.
