Has anyone seen a sure drain or fumoto valve used on a motorcycle? Lots of people strip the drain plugs on aluminum engine/trans/primary cases and a valve would prevent this occurance. But it would need to have very short clearance.

I think that's going to be the issue with this... Installing a heli-coil would prevent the soft metal from stripping.

Yeah, but trying to get the right angle on the helicoil is a major PIA.
