PLEASE SOME 1 HELP. I HAVE A 04 GSXR 1000, i did an oil change about 4 days ago before going to the track to test out my co2 air shifter from cycle tec and noticed that my oil bolt wasnt really tightening up. i got the bolt as "tight" as i could and ran it at the track anyway thinkin itll be alright. i ran 10.4 secs in a quarter and went home. when i got there i noticed that there was a little oil on the trailer. so i drained oil and sure enough the tread was striped. i need to know what would be the best way to "repair" it should i use a helicoil? or drill and tap to next size up or any other better idea. any suggestions would be appreciated.

It is very simple to fix that.....it is better to recoil the oil pan. but in order to do that...you have to take it off....and do it correctly.

if you take it to the shop....they will charge you an arm and a leg for the labor.

i can do that for you ....if you live close by....no charge. if in doubt...

go to www.repsolforum.com and look for me.

c ya.

fix it the right way with new oil pan, gasket and bolt. Less than $150 for all the parts new and a couple hours to repair. Get yourself a torque wrench and you won't strip out bolts. A good micro torque and full size torque wrench should be in everyone's toolbox.

new oil pan. helicoil will work a couple of times, then it will start dripping agian.
Not sure why you would need a new pan. If i'm not mistaken the threads are in the case, a heli coil will be just as good as new. In fact all aircraft aluminum parts have heli coils installed from the factory and I have yet to see threads damaged to the point that replacing a heli coil did not solve the problem.
