oil drain plug hole crossthreaded?

my drain plug wont thread all the way in neither with stock or moose plug, when its almost all the way in it skips back one thread? is it crossthreaded? what do i do?

uhh that would be stripped my friend lol timesert and be done with it.

Local shop will do it for 40 bucks... Ask for a timeserve they put new threads in get a drain plug too

stripped. my bike does this alot. borrow a time-sert from your local dealer ship. there real easy to do

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.
