Default Re: What dosent suck on these bikes??

yah i learned the whole stud situation with my first build i broke 2 and then i replaced them with those black heat treated or really really strong allen head bolts my dad got from his work (he designs mining equipment so they have some good stuff there) and still i had one snap flush with the motor and i couldnt get it out as it was way harder then the nice soft metal around it ended up butchering the whole so i cut out a chunk of the the motor were the stud went into and i bolted a little block of aluminium to where i had cut out the chunck of the motor, drilled a whole tapped in my new thread and covered it with jb weld and it held up afterwards i sold it to a drunk he crashed the bike a bunch of times and it was still fine :P all the new studs i use i find they have flex in them, when i buy the 3 foot rod i can easily flex it and ive been using this rod to make all my studs and i have never had one brake
