    Stripped bottom threads out of carb

    If it werenít for bad luck. While putting on the carbs today, I stripped the bottom threads out of the number one carb. I first tightened all the bolts to roughly 8 pounds then tightened them again to the 17 pounds like the manual calls for. I made it to the 8 lb click but didnít get to the 17lb click when I felt the threads let loose. Can someone please let me know how screwed I am or if I can tap it out out or something? Thanks Marty.

    Thanks for the offer but the carbs are good, its the bolt hole in the block that I stripped the threads out while putting the carbs on. its the hole where one of the 6 long bolts attach to the block.

    Anyone have a link to a thread on how to take an engine out of a 2000 XL1200 limited. I'm guessing it needs to come out to put the heilcoil in it. Unless anyone knows of anything else I can do.
