Anyone strip the threads on their drain plug hole...???

The Heli-Coil kit is ~$30.00. One other I checked was ~$70.00!!
Any good advice on this?
As an FYI, I installed an aftermarket (MSR??) magnetic drain plug back in '99. Comparing the OEM and aftermarket plug, the OEM was 30% LONGER!!

I believe you could call around your local shops and have one installed for under the price of buying the kit, or find a board memeber willing to share his or hers kit with you.
After installation I cross drilled the insert to allow full drainage just as the oem notch in the thread allowed.
I stripped mine almost imediately, I felt like such a ham fist....
