Here you go (sorry about the quality)





I have to tell you that this engine was very low compression to begin with, this coupled with automatic decompressor made kicking it a breeze

was out today giving the @ a service, dropped oil, cleaned bike up a bit, great, put new filter on and wiped down old oil.

hand threaded the sump plug in, check manual, 35n/m??? seems tight so set torque wrench at 30NM and away i go, half a turn and bang, treads stripped.

So anyone know a solution to repair the threads without having drop engine out?

it was awful tight when took it off so think someone might have cross threaded it hen last put it in as i had baerly startd tighten it up when went

It might be a good excuse to install something like this (link is provided as an example only, size might not fit):

There are different versions of it and I'm planning to install something similar myself in the future. I just have to check what works best with the limited space that we have.

I'm not sure why you would want a qwik drain valve and besides you still have to deal with the damaged threads. Seeing that it is a 14 mm plug you can try chasing the threads with a sparkplug threadchaser and maybe even extend the hole if it will allow you. You could then use a longer threaded plug.

Helicoil or Timesert is also a more permanent repair. Timesert is the preferred as it is more robust where as the Helicoil is a springy type thread.

Some of these thread repair kits can be costly and if your also not comfortable doing it then just roll your chassis to the dealer and they will do it for you in the frame.

Search around for a shorter one instead of a long conventional tap. That's alot of work when it could probably be done in situ even if you have to modify or shorten the tap/reamer.

Such as....

Your local auto parts supply store should stock those or something similar...I think the one in that pic was a KD. Following on ebay.uk

Get the part numbers you need and try it over at servicehonda.com. Not all parts are available here in the US.

For the parts you can't find here, consider wemoto, cmsnl or sending the part numbers to your friend and having them ask a local Honda dealer.

Pm me on the parts you are looking for. I am close to you and might be able to help out.
