Greetings folks, long time lurker first time poster... I'm having a hell of a time getting my sump plug out of my 426. I've searched and read the relevant forums that I could find with no luck, so I'm hoping someone out there has some brilliant (or any) ideas! I was changing the oil as usual, 2 weeks after the last change. I removed the frame plug and drained the majority of the oil, then went for the sump plug. First of all, the hex rounded very quickly when trying to get it out, which I thought was unusual since I am always wary of over tightening. After my usual ratchet and socket I try a shifter, spanner, smaller size spanner and tried to belt it in with a hammer, vice grips - all with no luck. Plug is now looking a little second hand. So I went to the local and bought a replacement plug and washer, the right size screw extractor and started to drill it out - usually the last resort, and the process guaranteed to work Trying to be careful of over drilling the plug, I put the extractor in and started turning anti clockwise as per usual. Then my extractor snaps clean off, with a big chunk stuck in the plug! &%$#@! do I do now? I pulled out the grinder and carefully squared the plug off to attack again with shifter, vices etc... No luck. So off I go and buy a larger extractor and start the process again. Now I have destroyed this damn plug, and have no idea of how to get it out. Nothing I have tried has worked and I'm now worried that I've accidentally drilled into the sump thread itself when drilling at odd angles... My bike is slowly dripping oil out of the plug. I've obviously drilled too deeply or in the wrong direction. I need some opinions on how to proceed - any and all advice is appreciated!
