K9 750 drain bolt....stripped oil pan.

Ok fine, I did it! Yep stripped my oil pan. I know this topic has been probably covered a considerable amount of times, I too will now join the club and ask for advise. Picked up the fix a thread kit from autozone 14mm x 1.25. I am ready to tap and repair threads but I can't help but wonder:

1. Did I get the correct kit size?
2. What is the correct drain plug bolt size for my k9 750? (Too much conflicting info on size out there)
3. Should I drill out the oil pan? If so, what size drill bit 1/2 inch? Instructions say no drilling required.

I am asking you guys to lend a helping hand before I really screw something up. Looking forward to hearing back from the community. Thanks.

So does that mean my kit is wrong size? Everyone seems to have a different size posted. Am I looking for 14mm x 20mm x 1.5mm?

Using kit to tap out stripped threads, insert steel time cert, then put drain pug in and fill her up with oil.

Drop the exhaust,then remove the oil pan. Repair it on your workbench and not while it's on the bike. You'll need to clean the aluminum shavings/debris from inside the oil pan after the repair. Thats why it needs to come off the bike.
Or go on eBay and buy a used pan. And a torque wrench.

This is why you need a torque wrench. 16.5-17 ftlbs is all you need.

That's what I was afraid of. No, you need to pull the oil pan to tap it, then be 100% sure all of the shavings are cleaned out. Then, put in the new drain plug and make sure you don't screw it up. Finally, put the oil pan back on the bike.
