sheared kickstart bolt

Post  robthebob on Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:04 pm

right folks.

I've just pulled the xr out to discover the kickstart bolt head has sheared off; so nothing to grip. kickstart is still attached. Read about left handed drill bit - but what size would i need - what size is the kickstart bolt.

solution?

Pretty sure it's M8, the bolt shouldn't be tight once you can move it. Screw extractors would be the way to go

Get a decent sharp high speed drill and carefully drill the middle hole, I would guess about 5mm the extractors normally have a drill size on them. Bolt won't be hard so as long as your drill is good it should be out within 10 mins.

Cheers Mauser. What I was thinking too.

Is it okay to threadlock this bolt in place?

Shouldn't need it really just make sure you get a high tensile bolt, I used a slightly longer bolt and then used a M8 nut to lock the pin in position...basicallly the pin goes all the way in and then the nut is tightened up against the lever.
