    The bottom hole on my '05 FLTRI RoadGlide is stripped. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can repair it with? I'm thinking something I can put in the hole as a liquid and let it cure and then drill to the proper size for the self tapping original screw.

    The dealer has a repair part for fixing that problem or JB weld can be used and drilled after hardening. Is there enough meat to use a threaded insert that utilizes a pop rivet gun to install?

    If you have any pork chops, I'll come and do it for you :lolrolling

    Glider, he is in Florida and you are in New York. I was in Florida last week and it was 95' F, probably warmer there then N/Y. No brainier. You should go just too help him out
