No one would argue this is NOT a pretty picture, huh?:
Yup, that's my DL1000's oil drain plug. I went from that to this:
I have written a full report with photos on my own website but thought I would post here for other Stromtroopers who at some point may find themselves in the same position and might benefit from my experience and information. Here is what I used:
Time-Sert repair kit #1415A
Honda Civic drain bolt part #90009-PY3-000
note: The stock DL1k oil drain bolt size is 14mm x 1.25 --repeat, this is for the DL1000. I decided to use the TimeSert insert that is M14x1.5 and therefore needed a new drain bolt (thus the Civic one).

If you are a registered Stromtrooper with a minimum of 25 posts and find yourself with a stripped oil drain plug, I may be willing to loan you my Time-Sert kit (tools) so that you don't have to plunk down the dough to purchase the kit yourself. Best way to reach me is via the email link found on my website.
