I would like to add to this thread and maybe some of u might have some ideas what coud have happened.
I purchase a kuryakyn license plate frame which is a very nice peace.
After getting my plate mess straightened out I got my Rayder plate(in my gallery) so needed to replace
The temp, there was 4 ss bolts standing between me and this job, easy enoungh right?
Wrong, the four bolts are a allen head and ss chrome with ss locking nuts, when I started backing them off they were tough
So apon closer inspection I can see little burred spots on the bolt threads in frt of the nuts
no way to repair this so off came the nuts as is
replaced the plate, tried to reinstalled the bolts and nuts(not a good idea) ss is brittle u guessed it "SNAP" they both broke off.
my local ace had the chrome replacments
but how would these have gotten burred in the first place?
