That sucks. Maybe we can drill the old bolt out and retap it. Or did the pan crack?

I just thought about it i'm getting my welder this Friday so if the pan cracked we can just weld it back together. No worries we can figure it out. Very Happy

that might work but ,the thing is though i got the piece back on with epoxy and the threading is still stripped out like it already was, that's why it cracked in the first place and the piece fell off, im thinking of just buying the hole new bottom oil pan directly from ebay. i already placed a bid for 32.99 its originally off a 93 cbr 600 f2 but new there 150 dollars buy getting that it would be nice so i don't ever have to worry about it leaking plus the metal is cheap cast, im not sure it would weld back together with ease and still be able to keep the straight threading also to make matters worse when you turn the bolt to its fullest point of coarse its still gonna turn but its sideways as well so it would for sure leak oil fast even with rubber o ring its still sideways.

Yo,

As I said in your email, if I see the damage I can offer suggestions on how to fix it. Your brother seems to be on the right track-drill out the bolt and re tap it. However, if you just drill out the old hole bigger and retap the actual metal, you will end up with a bigger bolt size and it will be impossible to find a bolt the right size and shape-those drain pan bolts are usually pretty unique. My first suggestion is, if you can afford it, go with your first choice and buy a new oil pan. And yes, 91-94 CBR F2 parts are all exchangeable! Great for us huh? A lot of parts on my bike are off other bikes. Anyways my second suggestion is to, like I also said in the email, get a re-thread kit, which comes with the right size drill bit, and insert new threads into the hole. You can get these for around $20 from any local hardware store (not home depot lol). Just make sure to get the right size.

yeah new these oil pans are pretty expensive there like $150 found one on ebay for $30 plus $12 bucks shipping but that would mean i would need a new gasket plus there might be another screw striped on the pan that i can't get to so it would be really hard to get off (sigh) huum i guess im just gonna get it fixed somewere? towing is free so thats good! but im not sure yet of any costs? well thanks a super lot guys for helping!! if it doesn't work out i'll more than likley take your advise!!
