Oil drain bolt

Yea, I striped mine the night before my windy ridge ride. But you have to love Walmart at 10:30 at night for some quick steel so yea anyway to fix the bolt hole, or is my bike doomed to never have oil changes again

First it was OOk, now you.


I have lost my confidence in the average man, stripping your drain bolts. So sad.

Less sport bike??? I might be selling Trinka's 77 Ironhead. She doesnt ride since that asshat rear ended me.
Anyway either you dont mention the liquid steel holding the plug in or you tap and dye a new hole.

A new oil pan on an R6S is only ~$75. At least it's not $300 like on my buddy's Speed Triple.

???

I just looked up the part and it is $300+ well it is the oil cooler assy. I think I should replace with new vs. helicoiling it, I just don't know! I am torn on selling it, I love the bike but want a motard and you have to pay to play

Heli-coils are pretty cheap..
Check Napa. Or any other similiar parts store.
Make sure to get the right thread for the plug.. Probably metric.
Drill it oversize. Thread for Heli-coil. Insert Heli-coil (w/sealant).. Put in plug. Done..


Hee, hee, hee.. Sounds simple don't it..
