    02 GP1200R motor mount brass insert nut broke loose

    I've searched quite a few forums to see if anyone has had the same issue but while getting ready to put the engine back into my GPR, I had to replace a motor mount that was broken (front right). The rear bolt came out of the mount (had to heat the head to break the locktite) but the front nut (brass insert) was already broken away from the riveted plate (inside the stringer) and came out with the motor mount without ever touching that bolt. Tried sealing the base of the hole and using West Systems 655 epoxy with powdered hardner which didn't hold up to 5ftlbs and we ground grooves into the nut prior to setting to help give it something to grab onto. looking at possibly using a stainless nutsert http://www.enfasco.com/Atlas/update%...9/aekcdata.pdf as my next step into the original plate on the inside of the stringer. Anyone have any experience with breaking one of these nuts from it's plate? Not sure how thick the plate is on the inside of the stringer which could be an issue.

    Thanks in advance

    Cut the backing plate out of the hull through the stringer (as if you were making a gprxp hull cut) and used stainless nutserts. He fiberglassed back over it and it was good to go. He had some real good pics and a write up somewhere on it but i dont remember where...
