Er, um, soooo I have this 'friend', and this 'friend' of mine  Rolling Eyes  may have overtightened his gear box drain plug last time around (mmm no emoticon for dumb-ass clown), and this time during removal, a fair amount of aluminium shard came out in the plug threads.
He 'says' that he cleaned all the shard off and replaced the plug and refilled the gearbox in the vain hope that it would seal.... he 'tells' me that the plug didn't snug up, and that gear oil is now dripping onto his garage floor...

Any thread repair bloke worth his salt will have the full kit and the experience to do it quickly and efficiently. That's the reason for harder stuff I just call my local bloke....

The exact same thing happened to me...err...to one of my friends on a 1200 Sport.  Helicoil insert fixed it right up, no problems.
