Heli-Coil

Can you put a steel heli-coil insert into aluminum? Any potential risks? Are there better alternatives?

There is the only way, actually, to repair a thread into aluminum, unless you tap the next size over, but that would mean the bolt will be bigger and that poses problems in clearance.

Where exactly is the thread located? how much torque does the bolt has to be torqued to?

There is a company that makes insert for cases like this, Helicoil can't hold a candle to their products but dam, they are pricey.

Go with a timecert, they are better than heli-coils. More expensive but better.

It the mount for my chain slider. It prevents chain from contacting tire. I am guessing the vibration from the chain hitting it caused the issue.

It has a single bolt mount now (the one that needs to be fixed) but I am planning to add another to stiffen it up else I will go down staton's path and purchase a new actual SMR swingarm.

Time Sert is the ONLY way to fly.... if you can afford it. It's all I will/have ever used unless it's some odd size that I don't have in my kit.
They are picey but worth it. I have a metric master kit and a couple other "special" sized kits plus the spark plug master kit.

Heli coil is fine but I always have problems correctly installing the smaller sizes.

Werd, this is what I was talking about.

Two weeks ago I did cylinder heads on a 99 olds Aurora with the stupid 4.0 v8 aluminum engine. Did 4 threads and those inserts are so well engineered.
