Bolts behind primary stripped

So I checked the 3 bolts behind my primary and to my surprise all were over hand tight. I loosened all with ratchet and took them out. One was really hard to get loose. After examining the threads were stripped out but bolt was fine. The other 2 I put red loctite and torqued to 10ft lb. I retapped the hole hoping I would get lucky and tried with the original bolt, it would slide in and out of threads and then you could turn it about 1 turn and it would get hand tight, but as soon as you spun with ratchet you could see it was stripped so I cleaned threads again and put a little longer of a bolt and got it torqued to 8ft lb and tried to turn little more and it went down to about 7ft lb so I just stopped. And I put a healthy amount of red loctite on this last one. My question is has anyone had this problem. These threads are in the case so kind of limited options. Don't know if it should be good to run this way or if I should drill out and put helicoil in. Sorry for the long post just wanted to be thorough.

Re: Bolts behind primary stripped

Yep. Very common. Not the stripped out one though. Usually the bolts get out and munch the clutches.

Re: Bolts behind primary stripped

You could helicoil it or tap a bit larger bolt.

That's what my thought was exactly but with the other bolt I got in it's already at 7ftlb so I was thinking of just leaving it and call it good. Maybe check it out after a ride or two to be sure

Re: Bolts behind primary stripped

Hard to say if it will stay or not. If it does come out though it could be pricey.

Re: Bolts behind primary stripped

Tap it and use a heli coil. You shouldnt have any problems. A buddy used an electric impact on my 800 and actually broke the casting. I had to JB weld it, my belt box kept leaking water. I wasnt very happy but shit happens. Its worked great so far.

Re: Bolts behind primary stripped

What year are you working on? Or does this affect all years?
