I must have overtightened the drain plug a little and the oil pan cracked on the corner. I did try and JB weld it, but I just don't trust it. I went ahead and ordered a new pan, but I can't get the cracked one off!
I took out all the bolts except the ones holding that bracket on, I can't get to them the frame is in the way. So I am trying to wiggle the pan past the bracket that I cant get off, and slide it out without removing the header.. Is this possible?
I can't get it past the bracket, it seems to be hitting the sump. My next question is, if I have to take off the header, how do I do that? I can't fit allens in there, and I can't get my ratchet with socket allens in there either. Do I have to drain the coolant and remove the radiator as well, to get to the header bolts??!
any help is greatly appreciated. My first suzuki. Had a r6, 929, r1, f4i, now this gixxer. I'm excited to be apart of the community.
For anyone else who comes across this post in need of assistance through google or what have you, you have to drop the entire exhaust system to get the oil pan off. Unbolt the radiator so you can push it over a couple of inches to make some room for your tools.
