Just wondering if there was any yz 450 owners out there of the 07 model year that has ever had trouble with the bottom bolt on the oil filter cover ? There is clutch shavings and other things in the threads making the bottom bolt really hard to turn out and thread back in.
there is a little hole that goes from the oil filter resivoir to the threads and from the threads it looks like it goes to the crankcase.

Wondering mabye if I could plug the hole off, doesnt look like it is a important hole anyway.

If there is any yz owners of this year in specific im sure you will know what I am talking about.
Thank you in advance for any and all info that anyone has to share
