Hey all! On my 1999 I snapped a bolt on the fender strut. It was the rear one that holds the back rest and threads into a brace inside the fender. To remove it was a nightmare but got it out when I removed the fender. Since I'm doing a paint job I wasn't worried about the scratching I did but the bracket on the inside of the fender is now stripped of all the threads. I removed the bracket but don't know what it's called! I can't look for a replacement without knowing what the number or name of it is! Any help? Thanks, Joe

is it just a stamped piece of steel with nuts welded in it?? fixing it is probably faster, easier and cheaper than finding a new one........ can you post a pic of it??

Yeah it's just a piece of steel with the round threaded inserts welded on each side that stick thru the holes in the fender. There are NO threads left in it so locktite wouldn't really hold it since it supports the fender, strut and back rest bracket. I thought about just getting a longer bolt to go thru it and putting a nut on it but there's already no room between that nut and the tire as it is.

You could put in a Helicoil to restore it to the original thread size if you can't find a replacement part.

that's a cheap, easy fix for anybody with a little fab and welding skills and tools.... if you don't have those, most machine shops have all that.....any chance you're located on the south coast of Boston?? I have everything you need.......

Ww
