I have heard of people drilling a smaller hole up the middle of the drain plug and tapping a thread in it and putting a standard bolt, maybe 8mm thread as a new drain plug.

You'd want to be careful not to get swarf into the sump as you drill and tap. Go slowly and put a big blob of heavy grease on the drill bit and then on the tap.


Alternatively, you could take the dipstick out and turn the bike upside down
