Anyone have a helicoil for 6mmx1.00?

Hey everyone, I just got finished doing a valve adjustment on my zx6r and was torquing down the valve cover bolts when one of the holes striped. The valve cover bolts into the cam holders that are removable so I lucked out there but Kawasaki only sells the part as the whole cylinder head assembly and not finding anything on ebay. So does anyone in the portland area have a 6mmx1.00 helicoil and tool that I could use(will pay) or know of a machine shop that might be able to do this sort of thing? I'd rather not have to wait for shipping in order to get my bike back together.

EDIT: Just saw on amazon they have a kit for rather cheap. Will probably go with that option unless I hear from anyone

I may need to buy one for the guards on my Husky forks. The holes have been stripped before I bought it and I'm finally going to do something about it and install a couple Heli-coils. If no one responds, lets talk 'cause damn these are expensive!
