Side Cover Bolt Issue

3 posts in this topic

On the left side of the 650R there is a bolt that screws in to the subframe to hold down the side cover. The insert in mine spins, so should/can I;

1. Remove/replace the insert that the bolt threads into?

2. Drill through the subframe and use a nut and bolt? I'm concerned about comprismizing the subframe.

3. Drill out the insert and tack weld a nut to the face of the subframe?

Anyone have experience with this?

I'm not saying you loctited those bolts because it sometimes happens anyway, but this problem will happen if you use loctite on those bolts. You can drill it through or weld a nut on the other side or stake the insert in place and carefully tack it.
