parts help needed (954RR oil pan)

hey folks i can't believe i'm writing this soon for this level of help. i just bought my cbr less than a month ago. it seems i cracked the oil pan case where the oil drain plug screws in.

last nite i was gonna do some basic servicing/cleaning of the bike (fluids, filters, etc) just generally checking it out since i recently got the bike. read my manuals which indicated 22 lb-ft of torque for the oil drain bolt so i begin to use my torgue wrench after it was hand tightened. after a few turns i noticed it was getting hard but no click from the wrench?? anyway long story short. it seems i over torqued it & cracked the case (small hairline crack, but oil is leaking) where the threads are for the drain bolt. dangit i felt like crying!

this has NEVER happen to me before when tightening the drain plug on any bike or car!! are these engines (materials) that light & too thin to not take much beyond the rated torque?? has this happened to anyone else?

anyway, suggestions on how to fix this?
  1. liquid weld (like jb weld.. i hate to go 2nd rate, but am scared of the cost for replacing the entire pan)
  2. replace the entire pan? (from bike bandit.com it seems the part number is 197655-001 & "only" cost $165)
  3. any other suggestions??
please help! i do wanna ride before its too cold here in georgia

Re: parts help needed (954RR oil pan)

you could get it welded....make sure the guy knows how to weld aluminum decent.Next time just tighten the bolt up good by hand, put some light duty thread locker on it...you really don't need to 'torque' down an oil pan bolt....i never have...

ya know renegade i never have "torqued down" an oil pan bolt either, but since i just got the bike & knowing that it's lightweight, with tight-toleranced material, etc., i was actually trying to make sure i DIDN'T over torque it! THAT is the irony.

oh well, lesson learned....
