I went and done it now, stripped the oil plug. on my 03 WR 450. How do I tell for sure what size timesert or helicoil kit I need for this?

Thanks in advance!

Same size as the drain plug.

Be sure to coat the drill bit with grease, drill a little, remove, clean, re-grease, drill some more. Same when you tap for the insert. Keep all the shavings out of the engine.

Thanks, but I am not even sure how I find out what size bolt. They go by sizes like M10-1.25 x 16.2 . No idea how i determine these.

Anyone have this problem on tand know what I need exactly?
