I have a 2000 ZX 6R. I just changed the engine oil, but cannot tighten the drain plug. It just keeps turning. My local dealer said that I cannot tap the threads since the belly pan is aluminum. They said I need to install a new belly pan.

Any suggestions on tapping the threads or do I have to just replace the pan ?

Thx

Replace the pan. This same thing happened on my '86 KX125. But I couldn't get the plug out, it just spun. But on the KX I would have had to get new crank case halves. I sold it.

Thanks....I just checked out the coil solution. I am going to try that and hope it works.
