You'll just have to make certain the helicoil is positioned so that the o-ring seal on the drain plug will still make contact with the smooth sealing surface on the case.

I just had the dealer fix one of my motormount holes they stripped. They used a http://www.timesert.com/

They told me it was a permanent fix. Just to use a little bit of never seize when I put it back together.

Helicoils suck they can (and sometimes do) back out everytime you have to take the bolt out then before you can put the bolt back in you have to reinsert another helicoil.

No cash, it was warranty work. Just one trip back to raise after they it up and didn't tell me. Not to mention that they didn't even do the original job right. So it had to go back for 2 reasons.

It's the same sort of fix as a Helicoil. Use a good thread locker and they're permanent too. Timeserts might be a better product but they're much more expensive.

I guess it's a little easier to do with a xr70. I think helicoil is the way to go. Just make sure you get the right sized drill bit

Do you have pictures of your oil bolt? If it were me, I'd use an exacto knife or a small sharp flat blade screw driver and pick up/out the foremost thread where it overlaps into the next side of thread. You'll have to sacricife some thread to make sure you have a clean and straight path and follow up with a tap to chase out the threads. Did you use a crush washer?

There looks to be plenty of thread left to use bu it's hard to tell from the pictures if the back threads are damaged.

Also you might want to chase your oil bolt to make sure your threads or straight. might just pick up a new one.

This is a pic of the current one. About 12mm of thread. The case has 22mm of thread. I think im going to order this http://www.beal.org.uk/automotive/su...prod_2819.html (18mm long) and try to catch the back threads first before i try anything else. A guy said he did it over on the aprilia form.

well, ....no wonder it stripped, with only 3 threads. That's not the stock oil plug, I guarantee it.

this guy had a dealer install a time-sert and he appears to have had good luck with it (so far)

although in my opinion this should've been taken care of by the dealer before you bought it. because they either didnt do a drain of the oil while it was in their posession (probably to the contrary of their 50+ point inspection they "perform" on all used bikes) or, knew about it and let it go anyways, which is against full disclosure i believe.
