Help please - Pro Koryak dropper bolt


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


I have a stripped the bolt at the top of my Pro Koryak dropper post and need to find another one. I have been told that it's not the sort of thing I can buy off the shelf and I will need to have it made. Where can I have this done today? 


Or alternatively, does anyone know of a bike shop that might have this bolt in stock? 


I am currently in Hillcrest, KZN. 


Here's what it looks like - https://photos.app.g...n51fxJVTEHABuP7


I can't let something so small stand on the way of a holiday Giba Gorge ride!

Looks like a pretty standard shanked SS bolt. Take it to a specialist nut and bolt supplier *eg JKM Industrial in Randburg) and odds are they'll have one on the shelf. There will be some such supplier not too far from you.

It looks like you have stripped the head and not the thread of the bolt.  You could try cutting a slot across the head with a Dremel or hacksaw and use a flat blade screw driver to fit it.

Beef Tanner.... There's a name I haven't seen for nearly 20 years.


A specialist bolt supplier should be able to help you out.


Another option would be to match the bolt length and use a bunch of washers at the top of the bolt to create the oversized 'shank'.


David Marshal suggests a good, easy solution for a temporary holiday fix.... Flat head screw driver slot.


Hope you get to enjoy Giba!
