I have a 2019 Recon 250 that an employee crossthreaded the oil drain plug on. It’s in Alaska and I’m in Montana so I can’t get a good look at it. Has anyone repaired this issue? From what I’m finding on YouTube etc., it’s looking like a rethread and oversized plug might be best? Anyone done this and have recommendations on parts and thread kits? The wheeler is in remote spot, so running to a parts store isn’t an option.. I need to send the right stuff up to fix it and with long freight times it would be great to send the right stuff the first time. Thanks!

the oil drain plug is 12mm and it has 1.5 thread pitch
its only about an inch long

I would recommend to order a new oem drain bolt.
then you order one of these kits

they are called a helicoil kit.The kit comes with everything you may need.

You will drill the hole to a bigger size, the you will tap it to the outside pitch of a 12mm by 1.5
then you insert the helicoil and you are done.
you will then have a new 12mm by 1.5 pitch hole that will accept your new drain plug.

Good luck. the helicoil comes with instructions.
