Drain Plug Problem

I went to change the oil in my 07 Wr450, i got the filter changed drained from both plugs. I put the rear plug back in no problem then the front plug i put in finger tight first the go to put the wrench on it and it stripped the !@#$%^&ing threads out of the hole. Whats the best way to fix this i want to ride this weekend.

I haven't had it happen but you might have to drill it out and retap it and get a different plug and gasket.

I don't know if the 450 is any different than my 426. May people suggest heli-coils, but they might not be the best way to go (see this post). Tapping it out for a larger bolt would be easiest if you have the sidewall room.
