I have a friend that changed his oil on his fourtrax 300 4x4 and he striped the drain plug. It's on but he says he can't get it to tighten and it drips a little. Will the shop just tap out the hole and put a new plug in it?
We install time-serts when we run across this problem. A time-sert, which is stronger than a heli-coil, is a solid piece that gets installed w/ a special tool. The hole is drilled, taped and then counter sunk to accept the insert. When installed properly, the insert is flush w/ the engine case and the stock size drain bolt can be used. Kits are anywhere between $100 to $150 each but well worth the investment for a shop.
samething happened to me on my bike. The shop used J.B. weld to create a new hole and die tapped it to original size. Two tries later and it fits perfectly, only 10 bucks was spent! Try this before the expensive method
