I have an 89 7/11 and was putting the front wheel back on when I stupidly stripped one of the bolts for the caliper. Anybody know how I could fix this?

Thanks
Marc

Jeff,
The threads from the bolt completely ate up the the threads on the caliper, looks like I might have to get a helicoil put in...

oh okay, my bad, i thought you meant that you stripped the bolt head.

yeah, unfortunately there's not really much you can do, except helicoil it or replace the caliper.

on the upside, at least if you helicoil it, the threads'll be stronger than before.
