Helicoils

Post by Simon Peck » Thu Jan 31, 2019 10:03 am

Dear All,

I need to replace some of the helicoils in my suspension bars. Can you advise which make, type and size I need so as I can order the correct tools?

Thanks

Hello Simon,

I also did replace some helicoils for my tiger 1.

I have a set from the brand Phantom size 1,5-D M6-1,0
If you buy a set the tools to place the coils are included.
I will post a picture later in the afternoon.

Best regards Yves

Hi.
Never liked helicoils. Always found Time inserts by Width much better.

Hi Yves,

Thanks for the reply. Did the Phantom helicoils fit without having to re-tap the existing holes? Do you have a source for them as I couldn't find after a quick search.

Kind regards,

Simon

Hello Simon,

You can take out the helicoil with a narrow pliers,
and if necessary you can re-dril the hole, but normaly if you can take out the helicoil
you dont need to re-drill.

The Phantom set i bought in my country: Belgium and the company name is Tollenaere.
Best regards Yves
