Try vise grips or a bolt removal tool from sears. then replace it with a magnetic drain plug sold here on thumpertalk.

Orite mate. just had the same problem with my brothers bike. I lay the bike on its side. Hammered a smaller socket on just like you did. Then removed it with an 'Impact Driver' and a hammer. Do you know what i mean?

thanks for the help guys i got it off. i used an irwin damaged socket kit. i went and bought a sears kit too but when i got home i dropped the pieces everywhere in the garage opening it. i looked every where and couldnt find the one i needed. so i went to orielys and bought the irwin kit. i got the oil changed. i used synthetic lucus motorcycle oil 20w 50. is it normal for the oil to have to go in very gradually when pouring? it took abount 15 -20 minutes for the bike to soak up 1.8 quarts of it???????
