Rmz drain plug crush washer direction

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

i bought a 2017 rmz250 recently and am doing my first oil change. One drain plug has a copper crush washer. The main (oil plug 1) has a tapered washer. Which way does it go? Flat side out, or flat side toward case?

You know to put new ones in once in a blue moon right? 

And every bolt has a torque spec. Just saying alot of guys use the same crush washer over and over and over. And just tighten more, tighten more and tighten more. Then wonder how its leaking. And the problems in the female most likely. That bolts pretty hard.

Yeah, I'm not one of those guys, I use a new one every time. I just wanted to make sure I put this one on correctly as it is obviously directional.
