I removed it for the second time and the dam threads are screwed up and I can't get it back on, i even ran a thread chaser over it and it's only plastic and still won't' go back in proper, I'm not happy with this, does anyone make a billet one or something? i don't want to buy a new one and have it no better then this..... Thanks

There are no billet dip sticks made for the 450. If you need to plug the hole so you can ride go to the auto parts store and find an oil drain plug with the same thread size and pitch and stick that in there till you can get a new one. The plastic stock dip sticks are very hard to get back in once you take them out.
