Re: K9 750 drain bolt....stripped oil pan.
10 mins and 50 bucks, or? whats an oil pan worth? plus gasket and time? The last 2 bikes I've had were 20K kms with stripped plugs. Use the steel insert, and it will never happen again. I'd say one thing if you do your own stuff and dont get greedy with drain plugs, but what if you dont or you yourself put a new pan on and end up stripping it again? I've replaced Volkswagen oil pans (smashed off on a rock) and had the customers tell me to put an insert in before putting it back on. A pan will fix it, but your replacing it with the same flaw, the insert corrects that flaw.
