My friend has a '94 Heritage Softail Classic which is pretty much stock. There are three bolts that hold the speedo bracket onto the frame, one forward and two rearward.

The forward bolt also holds the front gas tank mount against the frame. It is about 2 to 2 1/2 inches long, and there is a spacer between the speedo bracket and the gas tank bracket.

This bolt keeps breaking where the threads meet the frame. This most recent time it was a grade 8 bolt, and he's still trying to dig it out of there.

From looking at the design, I am guessing this would be a fairly common problem, but I cannot find any discussion on it.

How can he fix the thing so it doesn't break?

Thanks.
