....does anyone know the size of the bolt and the pitch of the thread?
I have stripped the threads on the linkage relay arm where the shock mounts :thumbsup: :thumbsup:, might just replace it, or i was thinking of using a thread insert like a helicoil. ideas?

first thing i tried, well i went riding and it felt like it was bottoming out but way early.
So after about a half hour fiddling with the clickers i look down at the new longer bolt with the nut on the end and :thumbsup: it had been hitting another part of the linkage and was quite badly bent.
so no it isn't an option...thanks though :thumbsup:
