Hi gang. I went to change my engine oil today, ride a good bit to warm it up, parked, got oil pan and as I grabbed my 12mm socket and box-end wrenches, I found they did not fit easily/well. None the less I continued to try to get them on and thought I had a good fit but upon applying pressure to loosen the bolt the head stripped. This happened several times and I now have a fully stripped bolt head. Any ideas shy of a tap & die? I think I may need to head into the shop to have them deal with this. It really sucks and it super frustrating. Here is a pic of the bolt - its the first of the three located nearest to the front. Thanks! Rob

I'm trying to get my head wrapped around your photo......Is this a 2018+ DCT?
You say it's the first of 3 drain bolts closest to front?
#1 in the picture below from my bike?
Sure looks boogered up alright.......all I can think of is a very good vice-grip and take it slow. Maybe a little penetrating oil first....
