Strip goes the oil plug... :( **HELP** - August 3, 2012, 04:27 PM

Apparently Ducati went cheap bastard on the oil plug. So I stripped it trying to change my oil. I always had a shop do it but figured why the hell not? Save about 100.00 or so in labor. Turns out the previous duc shop (shall remain nameless) over tightened the cheap ass bolt. I had a T30 star bit in it and no luck. I have read online that this is a very common occurance. Just makes me about having something so simple turn into trying now not to crack my oil pan getting it out. Whch I also read is easy to do.

I need some help getting it out when my replacement comes in.
CORSE DYNAMICS Magnetic Oil Drain Plug: Testastretta

Any ideas? If your a shop what's it gonna cost me?

Thanks,
Q

$23 + shipping for a drain plug. Ducati tax in action...


horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you

So if I understand correctly, you didn't strip the threads, just the Torx head right? If so, just take a Dremel, cut a slot in the head and use a big flat head screwdriver to loosen it.

Holy crap that's simple and I think possible if I can find a disk small enough not to cut into the threads. I just got done talking to Colemans and they said possibly a new oil pan all together $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

I am gonna try this out. THANK YOU!

They told you new oil pan.


Lol Coleman's


You can also try pounding a bigger torx bit in there. Dremel is easier tho

Yep, I've done the dremel thing a bunch of times (er, not on oil drain plugs). That may actually be the thing I've used it for the most. Lots of crappy fasteners out there.

http://www.ducati.org/forums/1098-1198/10737-oil-drain-plug-shaved-help-needed.html

Anyone have the chisle SLOWER THAN YOU mentions and shows in this thread on page 1? Anyone have a good shop that I can take my bike too? I don't have a lift or pitbull stands. I tried the flat head approach but it didn't work. I am gonna see if I can find a smaller cutting disk and maybe jam a flat head all the way in the bolt and wrench it. I'm running out of ideas and patience.

When you install your new oil plug make sure to use a small amount of anti-seize so that moving forward you won't have this issue.

Don't get this one though...

Do you have a picture of said bolt in its current condition? Trying to find out how much material you have to work with.
