I over torqued the sight hole flange bolt for the clutch oil on a 2011 Honda CRF 250R and stripped the threads on the crank case......not the bolt
Any ideas to reinforce my thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to take it out of service or pay for a new crank case cover.
I am thinking heli-coil, or tap it and use a 5/16 ( it is a 6M ), I don't want to go 7M or 8M because I think it will affect the correct level of oil.
Will aluminum filings get in the crank if i tap it and damage my clutch ?
Any better Ideas

I was using in/lbs.....had it set on 11 instead of 9 on hot aluminum and she just turned right around. Gonna turn it in by hand next time till it's snug and just change out the washers more frequently.
