I have a question about my drain plug, it doesnt look like the stock one. Can someone post a picture of what it should look like and it doesnt tighten all the way, it goes in all the way but wont tighten at the end... what should i do?

Sorry, the oil drain plug. I dont think it has the stock drain plug, but anyways the bolt doesnt want to thread. i start turning it but it doesnt tighten at all

There should be a copper or plastic washer on the shaft of the oil plug which seals between motor case and head of oil plug. If this is missing there may be issues with threads not catching at the end especially if it's been over tightened

sounds like someone stripped the threads in the pan. Happens all the time with these canams.

If that is what happened you can use a tap and step up a size for a new plug, or use a helicoil type repair kit.
