07 trx400 oil drain bolt housing cracked

Recommended Posts

A friend has a 07 trx 400ex..the engine drain bolt housing has a couple of cracks where the drain bolt threads in and is leaking oil...a one had any luck sealing this area with JB weld or something similar ?

We had a member that had this problem.  It’s a tough call working with this sort of thing.  

JB well does work but it’s not a permanent fix by any means.   There are secondary drain plugs you can install that get installed and they have another drain plug that’s within the new plug. Much smaller hole but it works.  You could install that and carefully thread it in with high heat silicone.  That should hold on for a while but you have to constantly check it.  

Second way to do it is have a good heli arc welder weld the cracks and maybe re tap it.

Hey Bro I used these myself on spark plugs that got striped out and never had a problem so thing I go this route over the JB weld any time.I used it ti in crazy places always worked but if you lost the oil that work but the end if it.

Good luck hope it works for ever what route you choose buy heli coil is very safe and no real pressure on it either like a spark plug has

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      And the new 300FW is already wounded. Something got in a bind and blew the whole chunk of case out around the primary drive gear at the back of the motor. In the pic you can see the crack along the top...there is a big chunk missing from the bottom. And it won't roll....but the front and rear diffs both seem fine. Unfortunate. This looks to be a bit of a project. Still feels like it will shift through gears so i'm wondering if the ring and pinion just jumped a bit and blew something to pieces.  I have a parts bike.  But will this require the case to be split and transmission completely disassembled?  I assume you can't just slide the broken primary drive out and slide the replacement in?
