Greg, I must disagree with you. Yes there are oversize self tapping plugs. They do work, BUT... The thread pitch is more coarse, therefore the torque application will be different. I have had customers literally rip the case out, or crack the case, in an effort to compress the drain bolt gasket enough to not leak. In this failure, the case will have to be dis-assembled for welding, or replaced. This being said, most people will have no issue. If you, however, are one of the lucky 1 per-centers... The insert I use is stronger than the aluminum case. The only issue I have had is an occasional one will screw out. It is easy to insert another.
Sorry to hear that, Will. I would talk to your dealer before doing anything yourself. It may well be covered by the warranty - I certainly think it should be but that's not quite the same thing.
All I have to do is figure out a way to tip the bike over without any damage......
