Decided to change my oil today.Drain the oil removed the filter housing and bolt.Put the new o rings and filter in canister line up everything start the bolt in and strip the threads on bike.Spent all day trying to find a 20mmx1.5 tap.Only one I could find cost $88.So I went home and used a small file to dress the threads some and put it back together.It was real tight but there are no leaks but I am not looking forward to changing the oil next time.Real D/A move.

Not to worry, you can get everything you need for installing a Helicoil repair next oil change.They are very dependable, but you gotta frollow the directions to the letter. I like using Loc-tite Red to locke the new threads in permanently. Good job cleaning up the threads and getting it to work,in the first place. jimsjinx
