Hi guys,
Hopefully someone can help me with this problem. I was just changing my oil ( in a bit of a hurry) and was inserting the drain bolt back into the bottom of the crankcase when i turned just a little too far and stripped the damn bolt hole . I'm going out of town in the morning to go ride this track and now it looks like I'm screwed.
Anyone got a fix that that i can perform tonight?
Any help would be appreciated.

Boy, I don't know about any permanent fixes other than using a helicoil kit. Your familiar with them right? I guess you could also use a tap and die set, but you would end up with a larger hole and bolt. Good luck, Maniac
