Based in London and happy owner of a Buell XB12SX since 2010.
My mistake: I believe the plug was tighten too hard during the last oil change. I am pretty sure the thread is damaged, and I fear it may come with the plug next time I unscrew it.
The oil needs to be changed now and I am looking for a garage which could fit an insert (TIME-SERT 1/2 - 20 SAE Drain Plug).
I already have the insert kit and I prefer an insert to drilling and threading at a larger diameter or to any sort of Helicoil solution.
Could you recommend a garage in particular in London for such repairs?
I live nearby Jap and German Motorcycle in Bermondsey but don’t know whether they could assist.
