Default Stripped exhaust Bung

Hey guys,

So, first off, i'm an idiot! Now that that's out in the open, I tell you why... I stripped out the M18x1.5 exhaust bung removing the O2 sensor. I stripped the threads out of the bung and ripped the threads off the O2 sensor. I need to fix it so I'm looking for some opinions on how to go about it. One option is to actually JB weld the stripped O2 sensor in there and deal with it later if I ever have to remove it (low pressure, so should be a good enough seal). I might replace the pipes later anyway. Or i could cut the bung off and add a new one, which i already have. Then i have to order a new O2 sensor. If anyone has any suggestions, by all means, pass it along. Greatly appreciated!

Remove both o2 sensors, and plug the holes. It is better for your motor anyway.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

JB Weld will go away from the heat.
If you go to a harley shop and have them look up in the aftermarket catalogs you will find weld in bung plugs.
As far as stripping it out it happens to the best of us.
