Hi everybody , I used the wrong size Allan wrench , I usually remove it once in while just to oil it , keep it from ceasing , now the head is stripped any ideas how to remove it. There isn't enough sticking out to get a plier on it, I was thinking of welding a nut on it but kinda hesitant hooking a welder on the bike because of electronics . Thanks for replying :sad: want to be :yahoo:

Several options...you can grind down an "easy out" to fit whats left, if its inch, find a metric that you can pound in, or vice versa. Or grind down a slightly larger Allen wrench on all six sides till it just barely fits, pound it in, and, prior to trying any of the mentioned ideas, heat with a torch. I have even beat in a torx in an Allen in times of desperation.

Just drill a small (1/8'') hole in the plug and leave it like that. Any condensation will then sputter out the hole without accumulating in the muffler. The hole is not big enough to effect noise or performance. Just check the hole every once in a while to make sure it is clear.
Many motorcycle mufflers come with a small drain hole like that but no drain plug.
