    the threads on my oil drain plug are toast. I bought an OEM oil drain plug and it was way too small. Hence I've concluded the previous owner had someone drill a larger hole and re-do the threads. What is the best method to find out the size oil drain plug I now need?

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    I wanted to set my TPS and TB's today and couldn't get the idle down. The idle adjust screw had come off the TB, that's why that wasn't working anymore and my Fast Idle cable got kinked at at the handle's side because there was no lubrication in the cable anymore.:banghead I'm gonna have to...
