Hammer and a sharp chizzle will take off even the most stubborn drain plugs. Have a new one ready.

i think yamaha likes to tighten them from the factory double spec just be a bunch of twisted . i stripped the out of mine on the first oil change and had to drop by texas yamaha for a replacement, it was on way too tight.
