Looks like I jumped the gun boys. The kit I ordered had too long of an insert. So it looks like I will be pulling the pan again and trying again. Time-sert will get one more shot on my stupidity. Just know if it doesn't work this time, I will buy a bigger tap and moving up a size.

I take back everything I said about Time Sert. It may work for some but not for me. Contacted the company with my problems and the first kit they sent had the wrong insert. They sent a smaller insert and instructed me to put locktite on for 24 hours. Followed the directions and left it cure for 48 hours to be sure. Put the plug in and tightened it down and drip drip. Will be making that angry call in the morning to Time Sert. After that I'm taking the pan off for the 3rd time and sending it to a machine shop to see if they can fix the problem.

Ref, Did you spray the threads real well with brake or carb clean before you installed the TimeSert insert & locktite? That is crucial to get any debris & oil out of the threads.

Time-Serts

Hey Efinref, Man - There is nothing more frustrating than having to repeatedly take something apart during a repair. A Time-Sert would seem to be a good solution to restore the oil pan threads in your bike. I've not used a Time-Sert kit on a large size bolt, but I have successfully used them on numerous early 911 Porsche flat 6 engines with pulled cylinder studs. The extreme operating failures on these engines when raced are pretty well eliminated once Time-Serts are installed in all of the stress points. Hope the next attempt at solving your leak works. Please keep us posted -

Good Luck, Michael
