Oil drain stripped, ideas?

Recommended Posts

Changed oil on my 2011 rmz450 today and turns out the main drain is stripped.  the bolt goes in but you can get it off with good hand force.  Needless to say I can't drive like that so looking for ideas on how to fix.  The two ways I think are for now get a safety wired bolt, or take case apart, pull whole clutch and drill/tap for new bolt.

helicoil and then use the side strainer bolt for draining oil

If I pull the clutch can you get at that drain from the inside or did case need split?
