Hi all, While replacing the rear pads on my GT650R I have managed to strip part of the female thread from within one of the two caliper mounting holes. The bolt tightens up better than finger tight but will not torque to its correct setting. I was using a torque wrench, properly set, at the time. Not happy. I am re-considering doing the front brakes. As the manual specifies 18 - 28Nm of torque and I managed to strip the thread using 20ft/p (just under 28Nm), I don't know if I want to risk killing any bolts on the front. So, three questions: 1. Given the above, would you consider this 'safe to ride'? The bolt is hand tight and the second bolt is torque'd fine, and it's the back brake after all... 2. As a fix, would I be better off tap'ing it out and using a bigger bolt, having a helicoil fitted or simply replacing the bracket into which the caliper mounts? 3. Could I get this fixed under warranty given I was using the correct, manufacturer specified torque ( I seriously doubt this will happen but hey I have to ask).
