Stripped my threads out.. HELP


I'm racing this weekend and stripped the threads out on the exhaust header bolt hole on my brand new clone motor. What type of helicoil do I need to get to go in and fit ?
Believe this is what you need.

Should be M8X1.25, but with clone stuff, it may vary.

I wrote an article for our Tech Talk Tuesday column on our Facebook page about a month ago concerning installing heli-coils and thread inserts. It was geared toward the LO206, but all the principles apply (just not the thread size.)
Scroll down to the latest tech article -- I've been too busy to write anything on there lately.

Hopefully you find that helpful.
