Damn it! I was draining the oil on my 86 750 the other day. I was putting the plug back in with a new crush washer. Well the damn thing just kept on turning
I pulled the plug back out and there were (what was left of) the threads on the drain plug.I am sure that this was something that started happening long before I owned the bike. Oh well, I doesn't matter who did it, it's done so now I have to fix it.I have to pull the fairing, exhaust & the oil pan to heli coil it. What a pain in the a**!
So the moral of the story is....be carefull when pulling & replacing oil drain plug

Ive justed brocken a bolt on the rocker/valve cover (Oil delivery)and I was using a torque wrench.
All done by the setings in the factory manual.

The bolt must have been fractured by the previous owner.

$17 Aus and a weeks wait to have another. [email protected]#$$.

It wasn't that I over torqued the bolt, the threads were just NOT there to tighten. I'm sure this was due to "over tightning" in the past.

And yes, I HATE it when something so simple (like a oil change) turns into a major project! But I'm no stranger to this kind of shit!

Don't forget to put a new gasket on it and new crush washers for the oil lines that attach to the pan.

I'm going to heli coil it, but I will surely keep you in mind IF I have any problems with the heli coil. Thanks for the offer!

I took mine off last year in the frame after removing the exhaust, an easy job and you can clean the pick up while you are there....


be carefiul tightening those sump bolts up afterwards though..........
