I just got a 02 yzf426 and i went to do my first oil change and found out the case oil drain bolt was totally rounded....so i tried the old trusty visegrips and couldnt get enough grip to break it free i even tried heatin the case and still couldnt budge it ...the bolt is aluminum so i dont think an easy out would work but are there any suggestions....thnx
