Stripped Oil Pan Drain Threads

Drain bolt looked a little janky before last oil change, so i decided i would get a new bolt before next oil change. Came out to a little puddle of oil (about 2 weeks ago). I cinched it up just a little, about 1/8 turn. I got a new bolt yesterday. Did the swap with oil in (only spilled a tiny bit). Went to cinch down new bolt. Stripped.

I'm not using helicoil, and not gonna tap it out. To much of a weak spot. I'd RTV it in but that bolt could easily shake loose. Looking at oil pans.

Yeah. Good idea. No sense messing with your life for the cost of an oil pan. I would get a new oil pan as well as/drain bolt and gasket. With the correct oil and oil filter and be done with it. Peace of mind.

I found an oil pan from an 06 with 8k miles for $85. Or do I go $160 completely new?

Buy the used one as long as it checks out good. No sense in spending twice as much on something if you can get one that will clean up like new. That's just my opinion, though.

Motorsport.com $130 free 3-day shipping. Done.
Given its not a moving part, but because of low torque mating aluminum surfaces...
The one is on eBay. Dude has legit feedback. But if something happens I'm fucked. Extra $45. I'm cool with that.

So I can't reuse exhaust gasket?

I've bought used oil pans for my cars in the past and they never gave me problems. Just be sure you have a good gasket.

That sounds like a good deal.

Not sure about the gasket. I reused gaskets for car oil pans, but that might be different.

Can't may be a strong word on this....but since they are copper crush gaskets I never do, and wouldn't risk it for the cost of the gaskets vs the time involved to have to redo your work later.

If it were one of the non crush type gaskets (yamaha) then sure reuse a bajillion times....
definitely new pan gasket

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I would go new. Used you are right back were you started, maybe. Not worth it.

I'm just saying as long as it checks out it'll be just fine. Any damage and he could get a refund. However that motosport one is a good price for new and if that'd been an option I'd have said that. $160 is too much in my opinion.



Oh yeah, new gasket is a must. Its an added expense but peace of mind is worth the little coin. Whenever I buy a used motor I replace all gaskets as I've found out the hard way what could happen. LOL.

Here's the pics of the used one..looks like that bolt has seen better days, it's been flattened..which means this is prob from a wrecked bike..my 14k oil pan is WAY cleaner then this one.
