I put a pro armor skid plate for my swing arm a month ago after I bent the stock one beyond recognition. Yesturday while doing my prep work before my race I noticed that one of the bolts on the skid plate had fallen out, so I started to pull the whole plate off when I noticed that the allen head bolt on the side of the swing arm was bent. As I was trying to unscrew it, I noticed that the threaded tap that it screws into was bent up and ready to pop out of the swing arm.

I eventually got the bolt off but the threaded tap fell inside the swingarm. I bolted the skid plate back up without the side bolt and it seems to hold up fine but my question is: can you replace the threaded tap in the side of the swingarm or am I S.O.L.???????
