The threads for the bolt pointed to in the picture below are stripped and have been since I got the bike. My question is is this a M6x1 and also would your recommend a time cert or do you have a better solution, Thanks

Yes to both questions, although I'd probably use a Heli-Coil because I have a bunch of them. Time-Serts are an improvement, though, and are easier for most people to install.

Thanks for the response, I'm gonna be doing your mod to the oil drain hole with the 3/16 ball bearing this weekend too. So many of your threads have helped a lot. I really appreciate it!
