re-tapping fairing bolt holes
Guys, some bolts dont thread properly into the fairing bolt holes and I want to cut new threads in the holes. Problem is I dont know what size tap I need to use. I just purchased a craftsman tap and die kit, metric, comes with 4mm x .7, 4mm x .75, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm and 8mm and a few others as well.
Any suggestions? I dont wanna tap the hole to large and be screwed so thanks for the help.
EDIT: Guess I should mention I am re-tapping the right and left side fairing bolt hole closest to the rear tire and the two fairing bolt holes furthest to the front in the middle of the bike by the turn signals. If that makes sense...if not, I can take photos.
