Hi guys, got a couple of stripped threads in my crankcase. Could someone please let me know what size drill and helicoil I'll need to repair them. Looks like it'll be cheaper to buy a kit and do it myself. PLUS I'll have the tools for the next time.
Cheers
Stewart

6mm are usual on the crankcase, so youll need a 6mm helicoil kit which should come with a tap and it should say on that what size drill to use.
