    I was changing the oil in the primary case on my 'new' Fatboy (used but new to me) and noticed that one of the bolts in the clutch cover spun pretty freely... stripped. Here's my question, can this be drilled, filled, and re-tapped or am I looking at a new primary outer?

    heli coil should fix ya right up. but ya need to leave it apart long enough for the heli coil to set with red loctite or next time ya take it apart theres chance it will come right back out
