Stripped sump plug KZ900

Recommended Posts

Long story short my uncle is retarded and forgot how to tighten a sump plug, so now I've got to find a sump for a KZ900, problem is anything Z related is like fucking gold dust. Anyone know of a UK KZ specialist that might have one for a reasonable price? 

We where planning on just having a new thread tapped into it, but it seems the sump is cracked, or at least it apears that way, could be a casting inperfection but he doesn't wanna risk it.

Strip the sump and check. Clean it up and if it is cracked get it welded.

Ally welding can be done for ok money. I had some lc cases welded a long time ago. After grinding and a bit of elbow grease you would never know.

As for the plug, pinni.... phinny.... phhimr... see above;)

i deleted, i thought all he wanted was a M20x1.5 sump plug, which are all over the place and cheap as chips

personally i agree on the sump repair - id also consider an internal braze as the sump only needs to be oil tight and maintain intergrity. a crack shouldnt be a problem if repaired carefully.

Yep, he's got an imported bike from California(As far as he can remember, the plate it had with it has long since gone missing). 

As for the repair idea we took it to a local bike shop and they gave repairing it a go, took a while but it's totally oil tight now. But holy Jesus Christ griding it into a part that looked reasonably nice was a pain in the ass, in fact this entire fiasco has been a pain in the ass. Thankfully it's over now
