So I was doing the 1k service on my '16 V7 Racer and stripped the drain plug on the transmission.I had the torque wrench set at 12nm since the manual only gave a torque value for the engine oil drain plug and figured it was the same for all 3.Years ago I had the same problem on my Harley and was able to get a replacement "kit" which included a tap and an oversized plug.Can somebody point me to such a "kit" for the Guzzi?Thanks in advance for any help here.
its the final drive drain plug.
Rear? I would pull that apart, ring gear is right there, not much through clearance.
Should be a 10X1 like the other oil drains in Guzzis.
Also, this task of re-threading the hole is best done with parts removed and installed onto a drill press or mill so that you can assure the final installation is square to the face of the casting.
That pilot nosed tap wouldn't be much use in situ by the sounds of it ?? Though I guess it would be easy enough to shove something up and see how much space there is to work with.
The beauty of the pilot nose tap I thought was that since it follows the old thread it will be square - not cheap though
Most trained mechanics I know are quite humble about you fking things up when you bring in the broken pieces....they've usually made the same mistake but twenty years ago. Mine just smiles and says, "yup, don't do that..."
