    probably not because it's most likely user error and wouldn't be covered by a warranty anyways

    I said: "I was in awe. Literally, they shaved the threads right off! These were brand new Sugino RDs and I know how to install pedals!"

    Anyway, RDs were cheap enough to just buy another DS arm. If you have nicer cranks like CRecords or the like, you can helicoil them.

    Yeah I read that; I was trying to help the OP, who did not, in fact, say that he has RD's. Maybe he has 75s and would be better off helicoiling them..
