Need a little help here. This probably belongs in tech but I think it will get a quicker response here.

I have some crash damage that I am not sure how to fix. I know what to do about the expansion chamber but the snapped off stand spool is puzzling. How do I get the screw that is left in there out? Any help is appreciated.

i'd just say to grind/file it flat, center punch it, and drill it out a little undersize, hopefully an easy out will take care of it and you will save the old threads. if not, just helicoil it and you should be fine, its not really a high stress bolt.

Yup, that sounds right.
If you use a left hand drill bit, it will be easier still. In fact, it will often come out during drilling, and you get to skip the EZout all together (which is nice, since on the occasions when they break, things get much more difficult, fast)

now to the pipe. Before I send this off to Cali, does anybody know of a local (TX) person who can fix this dent? These are $2000 pipes so replacement isnt going to happen. Any help is appreciated.

Use a left handed drill bit. make sure too use a center punch to get the hole centered. you may even want to file or grind the top surface just a bit so the bolt will come out smoothly and not catch on a sliver of aluminum at the surface.
good luck

About the expansion chamber, you are going to laugh but...

1. remove from bike
2. fill with water
3. place in freezer

I read it here: expansion chamber repair (http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=523612&highlight=freezing+pipes)

Thanks Ronnie but those repairs are all on mid or down pipes and not expansion chambers. Plus the $2000 price tag on the pipes makes me nervous about a frozen water fix. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif They are hand made by a limey pipe guru.

Todd,

I am going to run the silver bodywork, with your freebie fender, at the next race. The red stuff needs a little Michael Patterson love.

Im at wrk till 10pm, but I will get the number after that an post it. Been using this welder for past 3 yrs after another welder I had been going to since '96 said he could not weld chrome moly (sp). Cant race a Duc and have a welder like that! AHAHAHAHAHA!

Chris what is that expansion chamber made of you so nicely squashed! I can prob swing by the welders shop (Its right by my wrk) weds and show him the pick you posted here and say 'fix that'?

Thanks so much Todd. It is made of stainless steel.

Its weird because if I lay the bike on its side the chamber does not touch the ground. I have no idea what could have put the dent in it. The only possibility I can think of is the rear set got between it and the ground and caused the dent.

Thanks again for all the help.
