'07 xr650l down tube oil plug

Recommended Posts

Need the part numbers for the plug bolt and washer.

drained the bike today, put the down-tube drain bolt back in, set the torque wrench to 12 ft/lbs (round half where it needed to be)... turned the bolt in, and it was free-spinning. i was pissed, figured torque wrench failed, and i stripped the hole. nope, bolt stretched and broke.

was able to back out the part that was in the hole.

did a quickie test with the torque wrench on a couple of other bolts, and I don't think the wrench failed, thing the bolt must have been stretched at some point. did the crankcase bolt to its spec 18 ft/lb, no issues.

Anyway... whose got the part numbers for the down-tube bolt and the washer?
