Oil pan Helicoil kit
« on: August 10, 2013, 10:00:52 pm »
Anybody have one I could borrow/buy? Years ago I stripped the oil pan on my bike. I've been able to limp it along but the time has come to actually fix it but don't want to have to replace the whole pan. I'm pretty sure it's a M12x1.5...

Whatcha got?

I a few weeks ago took  gsxr pan that had the same issue and took a piece of.1inch round.stock, machined it.completely flat and welded it.over the factory plug hole. drilled and tapped it. no way it will ever strip.
