I got a kink relief stem, and one of the faceplate bolt holes are stripped, the end part is good but i need a realy long bolt for it to reach back there, what do i use to like make threads good again? i think its called Helicoil, but what length and size? And will they fall out or anything like that?

Tap and dye or whatever might work haha.

i don't know if it'll work on that. if its stripped to the point it won't hold any load, i doubt there's any chance of tapping it for the same size bolt. go to the Ace or home depot (hit up ace first) and bring the stem and try to find a bolt that fits right. and if none of that works, looks like your looking for a new stem. edit:post number 666 O.o
