They make a thread chaser you may find at a auto parts store to clean up those threads, or someone may have a tap and die set.

I should've and I do know better... Honestly I didn't think I was hitting it hard enough to bend the end of the shaft and mess up the threads. I'm so ticked at myself right now. Just making things harder than they need to be because I was in a hurry.

Oh well just another task for another day.

We've all learned lessons the hard way, don't sweat it too much. When I installed my aftermarket wheel adapter, the nut was waay too long for the wheel to fit with the horn button. I cut the nut itself down by almost 2/3rds. Left me with about 3/8" worth of nut.

I mention that because you might be able to just grind off the bad couple of threads and have plenty of "meat" for the nut.

HA ! Meat for the nut sounds dirty after I read it back to myself..lol

You've got time to order the adapter before you do anything crazy though, just to make sure you've got enough threads to work with... Just my .02

I am going to say it one more time just so you don't mess that shaft up any more than it is.

Use one of these thread repair files, its the right tool for the job, and a great addition to any tool box.

Some harbor freight stores have cheep ones, some Ace hardware stores keep them in stock, and some sears stores have them.

Thank you very much! I'm going to give this a try.

Let us know how it goes. Here's a little inspiration. I put mine back together yesterday, and couldn't resist going for a ride this afternoon... Ya, it's filthy, I know.

Pressure washed, under coated frame under batteries, cut aluminum angles for new battery tray. Just gonna paint the aluminum angles and rivet in place.


Got my new 4ga cables ready to go.


Progress is slower than I want but I always have something to work on in my "spare time"!!!
