They drilled out the head and removed the bolt left in there and retapped the hole just to fix the horrific crossthreading that had been committed there. Great guys. Thanks so much.
All right, we're happy for you, you must be relieved!

I am indeed. And I got my forks shipped out to be rebuilt with GSX-r internals and pulled the radiator tonight and am mentally preparing myself to do the valve adjustments. As long as we don't have anymore PIA bolts it'll be a fun little maintenance project.

Thanks again everyone for your help.

this is a GREAT idea that i'll have to tuck away for future use. But for those of us without welding machines is it possible to JB Weld or Epoxy "glue" a bolt to a stripped out one (with some time lapse involved) to get the same results you reckon?
