    Steering nozzle bolts falling off

    Iíve had the bottom bolt back out and fall off while riding 2 times. My thread locker isnít doing itís job.

    Now the aluminum is a bit stripped. Iím thinking of using jb weld. Any other suggestions?

    my go to for buggered threads in aluminum

    be warned, it ain't cheap and good for use on tragic and hard to replace parts, like obsolete italiano motorcycle engine cases

    heli coils are far cheaper and best for inexpensive bits like steering nozzels, used steering nozzle even cheaper.

    you have easy access to fix the nozzle as it comes right off and its easy to heat it to the correct temp

    here's the JB weld method, I've used this one too with good results on jet pumps nozzels and valve covers

    I mixed the JB weld 3:1 with aluminum powder. never a come back
