Don't use cheap drill bits use carbide coated and make sure use a center drill and gradually increase the drill size

And if it's a steel bolt in aluminium frame best to drill out oversize and retap a new thread just means you will have to increase the bolt diameter

Best to use a helicopter coil. Then can keep same size bolts plus its a stronger thread.

You tube how to repair a stripped thread. It's a lot easier than you think.
