    ok the left hole won'r screw in at all. i think the threads is damaged & the right hole will screw in & tight in up. im riding on one screw because the other intake hole will just fall out if i put a screw in. any help or ideals? what to do..

    Hey i just found out my threads inside my Muffler intake hole is stripped!!! when i try to screw a screw in on the left hole it will not screw in & tight in up. im using a m6 10x30 screw but the right hole will screw in & tight in up. im thinking i might need a new cylinder body what do you think?

    best is to heli-coil it, might be OK tapped a tad larger, new cylinder as a last resort

    next time use the muffler hanger that comes with the kit

    best to search the board here for heli-coil or google it

    you're pretty much stuck then - even the new top end may not work if you don't have a torque wrench

    you may want to look for a repair guy in your area
