(Copied From Doc Cox's Virago Thread)

Decided today would be a good time to get the bike running, but one flat battery, so, out with the spare but some previous owner had badly damaged one of the contacts, now it was repair time

Used a sharp wood chisel to remove the excess metal

Then very carefully drilled down the post tap a thread into it, managed to drill down about 3/4" which is more than enough for a stud to be fitted, this would be stronger then tapping the hole and fitting a bolt

First a primary tap followed up by a plug tap

Dave gave me this large syringe that is usefull for all sorts of jobs, one being blowing the swarf out of the tapped hole as it wasn,t a good idea to turn the battery upside down

Found an Allen stud making it easy to screw in
