Exclamation 2004 CR250R coolant leak and broken stud HELP!!

     

Ok so I just bought a 2004 cr250. It's a beautiful bike and I got a decent deal. But now the head gasket leaks coolant. I changed the gasket and it still leaks. It's probably due to the stud in the cylinder that is free spinning but won't thread in or out. I need advice on how to get it out and replace it.

They make a special tool to remove those studs unless the stud is broke off that's a bigger problem.also is the head flat or is it messed up. i laid my head on a flat piece of glass .

The stud seems to be broken. I can wiggle it up and down, and it just spins. But I can't get it out. Usually I just thread down two nuts to take them off but I don't know how to deal with this one

If I were in your shoes, I would sit tight and hope that PawPaw replies to this thread. That man's a Honda guru

Try the two nuts technique but with the difference that you have to unthread by pulling upwards the nuts so the stud can find a "decent" thread.

Like byronk said, you need to double nut the stud and pull up as you try to unthread it. Once it is out you can use a heli coil type insert to repair the threads.

Thanks guys. It's all taken care of. The free spinning studs just pulled right out with a little force. I installed a helocoil in each of the stripped out holes and put it all back together. Runs perfect now
