Default These screws imperative on V-One RRR? (pic included)

The two screws circled in the picture don't tighten up. I'd say the inside of wherever they thread is stripped. They do get to a point of some resistance but never tight. I have put some teflon tape around the screws hoping to get them to bite and no luck. I haven't tried any locktite on them, but I doubt it will do anything if they don't snug up. So, the question is...do I keep the screws in as they are as they don't back out on their own or do I replace whatever part these thread into? If anyone can tell me which part(s) I would need I'd appreciate that info, i'm a little bit unsure from the pics in the manual.

You need to replace the front bulkheads.

Or you might be able to use a longer screw.

Manual calls a 3X12 screw. Try 4x12 self tapping screw. Radio plate just isn't the radio plate but act as a chassis stiffener.

Yep they do. Most of tue stock screws are phillips. I would prefer allen or torx screws given the option tho. I think i have some front bulkheads for replacement. I will try a longer screw as suggested first.

Thanks everyone.

Check your battery pack also. Looks like it is amlost touching the front pulley. It is a tight fit, but if your pulley does rub on the battery pack it will short it out

No it doesn't hit. I spent some time getting it just right when I put this particular battery in. It is close. I can see where you might think it is hitting.

Is there somewhere I can buy replacements that are not phillips? That would be great to swap out.

This is the only screw maker I know but don't know if he uses phillips or not for your car. Guess you'll have to call or email them. anyway, i've bought from them before and would recommend them.

This is where I bought my screw kits prior to Kyosho using the hex head screws.

Just a quick note, if the screw hole is stripped and the threads won't grab anymore, put some CA on the tip of a tiny Allen wrench, and spread it around the inside of the hole. Give it a minute to dry, or hit it with some accelerator. I've been using CA to fix screw holes for 30 years and it always gives the screw solid material in which to thread, and I've never had it fail after using it hundreds of times.
