    Has the thread definitely been tapped all the way through? The sump plug is not bottoming out on something other than the washer is it?

    Easy fix, retap it with a small tapered pipe thread, doesn't need to be tapped square to the face and no washer needed, just a light smear of a flexible sealant.

    Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up, Checa told me a while back. Its a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. Its like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way youll never get to England! -- Carlos Checa

    I used to work with bikes but now I'm in the gasket trade.

    Theres a shit load of different materials available, fibres, rubber, Teflon so shoot me a PM and I'll make you
    something to test.

    No charge as we will put it down to R&D.

    We deal with irregular sealing surfaces everyday so chances are we'll have something.

    Changed the oil and oil filter at the weekend. Used new crush washer and the correct torque settings without a problem. No leaks.

    Good luck with the fix.

    There's an existing well tested gasket that works in this application. The sump is broken.

    Get the person who damaged it to replace it?

    Considering it was his dad trying to do the righty I can't see him taking him to court to cover costs...lol..

    If I can help out with a temporary fix that helps keep oil in your bike and you on the road just let me know?

    Unfortunately the long term fix is probably going to be expensive......

    Hi
    Have an RMZ 250 and undid the sump plug to change oil and the thread from drain hole came out with the bolt. I obviously over tightened on the last change. There is no sump pan as the drain hole is in the engine casing. I wanted to know if anyone can point me in the right direction to get the job done right the first time as no room for error. I would hate to think of the cost for a new engine casing.
    I have been able to bolt back in for now, but want to have re- threaded or helicoiled to fix properly.
    Feedback appreciated
    Cheers

    Westcoast motorcycles (joondalup) will be more than capable of doing this for you. Any decent workshop should, so if you have a favourite talk to them first.

    I would be tempted to weld on a plug then drill and tap that...have no thread in the case which will probably be brittle from age ergo the thread coming out with the bolt.

    Ok, thanks. Something I'll have to remember for later. Odd name though.

    I would be worried the surrounding alloy may be brittle with age. I guess the company knows what they are doing though.
