Replacing a frame stud

Post by mu11in5 »

I have a 1980 1200 GW that I purchased a few years ago as a project bike. I'm not that familiar with GW but am learning, but this particular problem has me stumped. One of the studs that holds my heel-toe shifter in place is stripped and I can't decide how to replace the stud. The best solution I can come up with is to cut new threads into the stud. I would need to go a little smaller since the threads are worn off the stud now. Please see the photos. If there is a way to replace the stud, or if there is an easier solution please let me know. Thank you.

That stud goes all the way thru to the other side, If I am correct this stud slides through the center stand and is threaded on both ends. Maybe a punch and a hammer will help to knock it through. The part number is 901-524-63770 (Honda) and are in supply. Hope this helps and that this is the cure. Let us know.
Might want to check your model number located on the neck of the frame to be sure of the correct part.

You're confusing me with what this bike is. You have 1980 as the year but call it a 1200. 1200's run from 1984-1987. An 80 should be an 1100.
