i own a 426 and the bottom oil drain bolt has been taped out soooo many times that next time it strips i need all new casing and the dealer said its over $1000 for it but $2000 with labour, i like that bike and ive already put $2000 into but is it worth selling the way it is or should i get the new casing and still own it???


Is it too big to helicoil back to the original bolt size? Why the heck does it keep getting stripped in the first place??

P.S. I use an oven on low for 5-10 minutes just hot to the touch and a can of duster upside down to freeze/remove bearings... they fall right out. When i put them in i freeze the bearings and warm the cases... drop them in and and all is good. May not be yamaha recomended, but it requires no force, banging or pulling.

dont listen to the dealer. I got my new cases with bearings for 100 plus shipping off a guy on here and they are in excellent shape. then spend some time on here reading, buy a manual, and once you have all the parts together the job will take you less than a weekend. Im about 5 hours in and I have the motor completely apart and am just waiting on a gasket kit from the states to put it all back together.

YamaBond, or a Permatex product called "The Right Stuff", which duplicates the RTV sealing compound used by GM professionals. The case joints need to be CLEAN. Finish them with brake cleaner.

Yamabond is the best sealant I have ever found for motors bar none. There is 2 types hard drying and soft drying. Both are excellent sealants. Now that gray mentioned the other type i might give it a shot too just to compare. :busted:
Make sure you use a fast evaporating brake cleaner. It will stick much better.
