250F large oil screen frig-up

Recommended Posts

I put this on ktmtalk too,

Just changed the oil on my 07 250 F and stripped the hell out of the large oil screen cap (the one on the bottom of the motor). I didn't think to much of it because every time I have cleaned that screen, there was never anything in it.

Unfortrunately, for some reason it seems to be leaking. As far as I can tell I did not even budge it. I could not tighten it or lossen it, so I am guessing that I wore away some material from the bottom of the hex socket an it is leaking from there. Has this ever happend to anyone? Any suggestions?

Like my topic title says, I am kind of frigged right now!

the get stuck, crack, break, etc. The manual says to hit it first to relieve the stress before removal. Now you may have to weld a nut on there, use a chisel, next bigger allen forced into the hole with a hammer, etc. Once out replace it with a aftermarket one that has a hex head on it.
