    Oil filter housing allen bolt

    Any idea where I can buy an allen bolt drain plug for the oil filter housing? Last owner rounded it off and I had a hell of a job getting it off today.

    Do a google search for magnetic drain plugs.
    The stocker is a shocker.
    That allen head is as soft as french cheese.
    I replaced mine with a standard hex head, so at least I can get a spanner on it.
    There are loads to choose from, full info on AF1. Just do a search there.
    ISTR mine is a KTM jobbie.

    I've got the same problem. Believe it or not I use tin foil to build/pack the rounded edges out and then tap an Allen key in so it's a tight fit...Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your live-in lover! Not a permanent fix but ite lasted 2 years so far ;-)
