Default Idler Wheel - Chinese make crappy bolts

Kicked a chain three times today. First on trying to start bike. Rolled it back to the shop and realigned the idler wheel. Kicked the chain three more times. Here the top clamping bolt was stripped. It looked tight as it was clamped all the way down, but wasn't. Pulled the bolt and put a good old American bolt in it and now everything is fine. The chinese make nice motors but crappy nuts and bolts.
