autozone probably has a re-threading kit there *for rent*, but if you don't know how to re-thread.....i wouldn't suggest experimenting. too bad trackday is tomorrow, or i would've said swing by my shop, and i'll re-thread it for you.

use that auto zone one, get a couple of dif sizes, it fits in the hole and drills, makes new threads at the same time, it will prob last forever. make sure when its done, put 1/2 quart of oil, then drain, to remove the cut metal. the sizes are 1/2-20 +1, or +2, or +3.(i think +1 should work) somtimes called single oversized, and double oversized. I would replace the oil pan after a while. pan is only $40.00 ebay. Did the same thing on my bus

Depends where you striped it, and how bad. use a spacer or some thread tape and just seat it before the strip part. should work fine

Are there still threads there or did they pull out?
If the threads are still there but are rolled or cross threaded a little, just run the correct size tap to clean them up.

If you have to use a helicoil, you're probably S.O.L.

The problem with the drain pan on the Busa, and most Suzukis as well, is there is a "cut out" or "slit" midway down the threads.
Most helicoils won't seal because of that once the original threads are gone. You can try a rubber expension plug, but I wouldn't recommend doing a track day with it.
Good luck.

If you do run a tap, a little trick that might help, is to put grease on the tap. That will catch almost all the metal shavings. It works pretty well.

Just throwing this out there for everyone. Jon mentioned having to wait till Autozone opens in the morning. Some Autozones are open 24/7, so if you are in a pinch in the middle of the night get online and see where the nearest one is.

The one I know of is in Pasadena on Spencer, there are several on Spencer so you would have to check to get the right address.

I know that you are probably asleep right now but I would jb weld it for the trackday and then I would get another pan ordered. It isn't worth fixing in my opinion. unless you take the pan to a welder and then have them add some metal to the hole, drill, tap and heli-coil or possibly timesert it. The timeserts are the best you can get for fixing threads in aluminum.
