The PO of my 1100 had stripped out one of the valve cover bolts (right side) and re-tapped the hole. He inserted a 5/16 bolt but did a shitty job of re-tapping the hole. The larger bolt has now stripped out also. I want to insert a Heli coil to restore the threads but am not sure what size will work.
The original bolt is a 10mm head by 3"but I am thinking that the Heli Coil I need is the either the 8mm or the 6mm.
Does anyone know for sure. I don't want to order the wrong one as they are fairly expensive for the whole kit.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... Wow--What a ride!"
