Oil bolt skipping

Recommended Posts

My crf250 oil bolt will not tighten for some reason. When I hand tighten it it will get slightly tight then just skip and goes back loose. What can I do about this?

So, the threads for the drain bolt are stripped.  Take the plug to an auto parts store.  They probably have a rubber expandable plug made just for that situation.  STRIPPED THREADS!

Which one you're talking about, engine or transmission?

I've heard of timeserts and just cutting next size up threads, no personal experience with that.  I did have to helicoil transmission side drain bolt, that worked out good.
