Drain plug is 19mm socket. Install torque is 23nm, with crush washer.What size wrench does it take to remove the final drive service plug and is it SAE or Metric? Secondly, mine now is stripped. Any suggestions how to remove it? Vice-grips don't help any except to mark up the plug
I'm with Gordon. I would try a heat gun. Heat around the plug, not directly on it. You want to have the housing expand more than the plug.I suggest you try applying some heat. Hopefully you haven't rounded all the corners off and use a 6 point socket.
Just be sure you use the correct scale on your torque wrench.Thank you all for the replies but I used an easy-out and got the plug out. I'm going to get a replacement tomorrow. Very disappointed on this lack of quality. I torqued it per the book last time, but it stripped out today when I wanted to do a pre-ride inspection. I might just do what Voyager said and reduce the torque value by 10%
