Of if you are in no hurry, do as doc ( coy) suggested, and order up a 8mm insert designed to work in a 10mm hole.

Thanks Kat, good info. Guess I'll get to see how they preform first hand since they are already on the bike. Thanks for the heads up

Hmmm, they make Twinserts, basically one heli-coil in another.

edit, I found some for 8mm 1.25 ID and 12mm OD, that might be too large though.
12mm is too big, not much material left in there.

you could always try stacking them, a 8 inside a 10 inside the hole, hell it might work just fine, I cant imagine its a really high torque application right?

Yup, not much torque at all, so will the Heli coils fit inside each other?

not sure, ive never tried that, ill experiment with that when I get home.

edit from google searching, you might have to go down to a 6mm bolt?

they might not thread into each other at all..

Albi I just went out and checked it looks to me like a 8 will screw into a 10 mm helicoil.
