Re: Helicoil/Inserts?

Hello, Just a quick one, does anyone know of any mobile Helicoil/Insert fitters in the Northwest? Had a slight leak from the Oil Sump on the Intruder and turns out the first two/three threads have snapped on the insert.

The Honda CMX500 Rebel definitely caught my eye.

This year though aiming for the full bike test, few rideouts on the 125 & plenty of photographs of travels.

But definitely not taking this out on any track!
