What you get is good
But what you don't get sucks, they should have included a t-handle for the tap so you can use it. Thankfully I had enough random tools that I could jimmy something and make it work, but a handle would have made it way better (they even show one in the how-to video). Even if it cost $5-10 more, still worth it.

I stripped out a head bolt on my '85 Yamaha XT350 and no shop would repair it due to the location and age of the bike. I found this tool and made quick relatively easy work on it. I later had to use it again to repair another screw on the valve cover. I've driven the bike for 5 years since with no problems. This is a must carry tool in your kit! Would highly recommend it.

Still going strong after years of use
Any time you have to use a thread repair kit, it's probably not a good day. For me, the threads stripped on my inner case for one of the three oil filter cover bolts. By being careful and precise, I was able to install the new threads into the case.

While the threads don't feel as "tight" anymore, I've had no issue over the course of five years and countless oil changes on my machine. If done correctly, this kit can save you a lot of headaches.

I'm planning on using this to fix my left side oil drain plug on a 2007 yz450f, and I'm wondering if you can break the tab off by pulling it with needle nose pliers or something? I'm afraid to push it with a screw driver and force the tab to fall back into the engine. Thanks!
:-)
KELLY S on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A valid concern, I found it best to use an small angled pick to pull the tab toward you to break It off, that way it is moving out away from the engine crankcase. Others things to consider to help prevent getting metal chips in the engine during the repair are to go slow with the drill, pack the cutting threads of the tap with grease to catch the cuttings, and if possible put some transmission assembly lube (special grease for automotive applications) as far down into the repaired hole as possible to catch the tang that you break off before it falls into the crankcase and allow you to fish it out. The assembly lube will dissolve in the oil and not harm anything until the next oil change.
Is the tap a bottoming tap?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it's a plug tap. The tap is only used for about 1/4 inch into the oversized drill hole so you can set the small threaded segments into it, so, for almost all applications where this would be used, a bottoming tap shouldn't be necessary.
I have a stripped drain plug bolt on a 2004 Honda CR 125. What size repair thread kit do need in order to fix it?
Lucas C on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: M not really sure, that's a pretty big diameter thread. Your best bet would be to call your local dealer to find out the actual thread size then go from there.
I need to rethread the insert where the subframe bolts onto the frame for a 2005 yz250. what size inserts do i need???
Aaron C on Jan 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you search online for in the user manual and look under torque specs they always have the bolt size.. Fyi, i have a 05 yz125 and as long as it is right side, you can put a nut on it temporarily. Other side a nut would get in way of chain.
I have a limited amount of wall. what size is the drill for the 5mm kit?
JIM S on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Jim, on the back of card with kits shows for three size of threads.
M5 x 0.8 uses Drill size 5.2mm
M6 X 1.0 uses Drill size 6.3mm
M8 x 1.25 uses Drill size 8.4mm
Hope this helps.
Are the inserts 1 dia. deep or 1.5 dia.? I need the 1.5 dia.

BEST ANSWER: They are about 1mm longer than the size (6mm insert is 7mm long). I've had success using two, one after the other, in places that require more depth. You can grind off the excess length.

2005 rm 250 gas tank bolt frame nut stripped what size tusk thread kit think it a m6?
Jonathan R on Feb 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Take the bolt, for that stripped nut, to a hardware store. Use it to find a nut that fits. The description for that nut will include its size. That size, is the Tusk Thread Repair Kit that you should order. For example, if the description of the nut is M8-1.25, then you want to order the Tusk Thread Repair Kit (M8) 8mm x 1.25mm Thread Pitch.
I have stripped my thread on my oil filter cap and I was wondering what size of thread pitch will I need for a 2001 Honda 400ex?
Yuriy B on Feb 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You will need to measure the thread pitch. We do not have that specification. I apologize for the
inconvenience.
