Default Oil Drain Plug

Does anyone know there is another plug besides WD or Dimple (wont be here soon enough) that will fit the 106 Vic engines? I don't want to use another OEM plug and I have a ride this weekend planned.

Go to an auto parts store and get an M12-1.5 replacement plug.(this is the stock size)

and be careful

Do you have an auto parts shop nearby? Take it with you and see what they can match up?

No the allen part of the plug is stripped out I found it after my dealer told me they forgot to change my oil after having some work done, they said we could sell you a kit. So I fund this while I was attempting this at home, they did the last oil change as well.
Isn't the thread size M12 x 1.5???

You are right, sorry, my error. I edited my post to the correct size.

Sounds to me like the dealer stripped the Allen recess and 'forgot' to change your oil!
Vics come with an Allen key the correct size and if you tighten it with that by hand youll never have trouble undoing it

i have seen many have issues including myself, snugging mine up(no where near tight) it got loose, hmm stripped the threads at the top of the hole, hmm what to do, looked on my bench, found an old cb750 oil drain plug, screwed right in, tqd down, good to go for three more oil changes, that plug is going to auction now with the bike.

left plug, threads go all the way to thd head, 40yr old drain plug, works great, right plug, threads do not, 3 yr old plug, strips threads out of motor, piece of shit in my book.
