    good day, hope you're all safe.
    I have a keeper of a TC90 and it's got a stripped out oil plug.
    Anyone out there dealt with this? If so, how?
    I have a buddy with a TimeSert drain pan repair kit and I am now
    in search of what size the drain plug is and the thread pitch?

    any help would be HUGE to get this cool bike smoking and rolling again.

    A makeshift fix is a rubber stopper from a hardware store.
    A stopper, or three, selected for (imagined) fit when twisted into the crankcase threads.

    this is a great idea to get the bike over to my buddy's house. Thanks a bunch. Hoping for the fix next.

    You should just do an oil change and bring the drain plug itself to a hardware store to get the sizing. Also sometimes the oem microfishe has the bolt dimensions in the part number. Looks like a great scoot!

    I've been microfishe'ing the sheeet out of this, yet it's gotta be in there somewhere. Thanks for the input, much obliged.
