Hello everyone... So I had 3 of 5 bolts backed out of my rim and pulley and were sheerd off leaving the studs inside and the threads ruined. My question is, should I retap the holes and add some helo coils with lock tight at a machine shop? Or any other ideas safety is an issue.. Also I haven't had any luck finding an oem (anvil aluminum polished) rear wheel for a2010 jackpot not trying to spend 1500.00 on a new one. Any suggestions would be appreciated

On DonWood Victory motorcycle parts it is + 1200 USD but there must be a few for sale on the net ....

Ok my take on the repair,

Wheel = aluminum
Pulley = aluminum
Tourqe speck of the steel bolts is for aluminum , so it is impossible to stretch these cheapo 8.8 bolts of Victory ...

So retap & helicoil & by a good machine shop of motorcycles work shop is of course a possibility, but what happens when it is 1 mm out of center , WOBBLY BOOTS

Bigger Bolt won't fit coz of the holes of the pulley...

I would try to find a second hand rear rim, if cannot, then 2 second hand rims that are a different designs
I just bought 2 rims from a hammer 2016 to fit on my jackpot ...

Could you post a picture, we like to see the problem?

some one with a drill press could drill out the bolts. Yes retread and maybe heilcoil maybe. Yes get new bolts from store and lock tight. Grade 8
Did you just have a new tire put on. Dealers will pull sprocket cause there tire machine can't handle the size of the sprocket.
Don't feel like its your fault there have been plenty others this happened too

If you decide to go the insert or helicoil route have the wheel dye penetrant inspected in the area where the bolt threads are to be sure that the shearing of the bolts did not start any small cracks in the hub to small to be seen.
Shouldn't cost too much and will save you from having the hub develop cracks down the road after you have put money into fixing it.

Ask around your area for a machine shop that does excellent work. They are around you just have to find one. If you draw a blank stop by a local small airport that has an A&P mechanic and ask him to point you to a good machine shop. Take it down to the machine shop and have them give an opinion as to if it can be fixed safely. They will look at it and have a pretty good idea of what they are looking at. Probably won't cost a cent to have them take a peak. You'll just be out some time.

Bolts backed out

Thank you ALL again! Dropped off the rim @Rod Iron Crew who dose custom muscle car and bike rebuilds, the owner Rob said it shouldn't be a problem, helicoil would be last resort and under 300$
