Additional Information

Perma-Coil helically coiled inserts are made of stainless steel wire that has been rolled to a carefully controlled thread form. When installed, Perma-Coil inserts adjust to a tapped hole, becoming a functional thread with a strength exceeding the original. Perma-Coil inserts and repair kits are designed to repair stripped threads in a variety of metals. Aluminum, aluminum alloys, steel, and cast iron. If the original threads can be stripped, Perma-Coil inserts can repair them. By following the detailed instructions enclosed in every Perma-Coil kit, even an inexperienced do-it-yourselfer can repair stripped threads, permanently.

This is the oil drain plug solution if you find most of your threads stripped on your KLR650 like I did (recommended by the Admin of KLR650 dot Net... Thanks Glenn!). You will also need to order a 31/64" drill bit as well, so go ahead and order that now along with this kit so they both show up at the same time (I know your thinking, "Can't I just use my 1/2" drill bit???).

Here's what I did:

-Drain all the oil out of the bike
-Tip the bike over on its side onto some old tires with a blanket over them
-Take off the oil fill cap and stick an air compressor hose into it (shop vac on blower setting would work too)
-Slowly drill out the old threads with a 31/64" drill bit and blast some air in the top to blow out the debris (be careful to drill straight obviously, or the drain plug won't fit on flush)
-Ever so slowly cut the new threads with the tap. I went like 1/4 turn at a time, backed the tap out, and blasted some air through the top to clear out the metal chunks

If you know what you are doing and know exactly what sizes you need a Perma-Coil kit is perfect. This fixed my quad in fantastic fashion. Just a great invention. Just be 100 Percent sure you know the size you need or you can get yourself in trouble in hurry.
