Oil Leak...

This is my first post. I'm not good with mechanics... Just throwing that out there. I have a 2005 gsxr750. The threading is stripped on the oil pan where the drain plug goes. Would it be possible to tap it? Or do i need to replace the entire oil pan? Or is there a better solution?

Re: Oil Leak...

Options:

Self tapping drain plug, but you'll have to do your own research.
Replace pan with salvage
Install helicoil to restore threads

In any case, you'll have to pull the pan, so you'll need a new pan gasket too.

Re: Oil Leak...

Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to go with the helicoil. I've been hearing good things about them. Not sure if an auto parts store will carry them but I'm headed to find out...

Re: Oil Leak...

I got mine from Autozone. Check the other thread. IIRC, the drain plug is a common automotive spark plug thread.
