Bunch of things you can do depending on how much you love the bike. Machine shop drill one size bigger, Helicoil, weld and retap, two piece drain plugs, etc. On my 01 RM 250 that I didn't want to spend any money on. I bought a self taping plug with a bigger pitch. Drain the oil. Lay bike on side. Grease the plug to catch the new threads. Screw in slowely with ratchet. Back out after every turn. Flushed the engine with 2 qts of cheap oil. Put self taping plug back in. Been working fine for the last 2 years. Make sure to buy a torque wrench next time to keep you from stripping screws. If you bike is newer I would go with one the more "proper" fixes, the only problem is on many models like my RM 250 you need to pull the motor out and apart.
