Hi everyone,

Let me start by saying I greatly appreciate all the expertise and advice on the board. I've been a member for 11 years and don't post often (I usually find what I need right away!)

Long story short, I damaged the top part of my fork tube thread (1973 Tiger) Does anyone know what size thread file should be used to repair this?

I appreciate any help!

D bloke, for a ''76 T 140, 20 TPI UNC thread file. I have a Stahlwille brand, and at times it has been invaluable!

is the problem at the very top?

you can sometimes reapair a thread by taking the bolt and cutting a cross into it, then using the bolt as a tap.
You'd need to buy a new one as well.

This is a good tip, and one I have used on occasion. Lateral thinking!
