My Fourtrax is leeking oil from the plug, I have done put 2 new plugs on it and it still leeks a little but since I sunk it and I have been having to change the oil, I think its stripped out?! So, do I need to try to rethread it or could i just buy an oversized oil plug?

yeah, new try new washer and if it's not real loose (which it doesn't sound like it is) you can always use teflon tape to help seal it.

Find a small flat screwdriver and try to slide the end of the screwdriver under the head of the drain plug. Now put pressure on the head of the bolt by twisting the screwdriver. You want need much pressure, just enough to put a little downward pressure on the bolt head. Now take a wrench or socket and ratchet and the bolt should turn out. Just keep a little pressure on the bolt until it comes out.

You are going to need to tap threads or use a helicoil kit.
