i stripped the drain plug in my 2009 Raptor 700 and after throwing a fit all night about it i went to o'reillys and they have this cool bolt that threads itself, its for stripped drain plugs, find a slightly bigger bolt, metric or standard it doesnt matter, and simply thread it in, treat it like a tap though, use a wrench, tons of lube, and dont go all the way in, put it in slowly, take it back out a little more and more each time.

theres advice on how to do two things.
