Thread: final drive drain filler cap

    Default final drive drain filler cap

    I was trying to remove the final drive drain - filler cap on my X 1300 R 2007. Looks like the thread is bad in the cap and the wrench is slipping. Currently I am unable to open it. Can some one help me with this? I also want to order a new part and I see the part as

    12361-300-000

    Is this the right part ?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    That is the filler plug, the drain is just below it.

    When you reinstall the new cap, be very carefull. They snap off very easy. Hand tight and a tiny bit of a turn with a wrench. Trust me, learned my lesson after I snapped off my 2nd one. Smitt
    Lot's of time and money. I trust no one's wrench, but my own. Avon Monster Club, Black Out Club, Mat Black Fastest Color....Pay it forward .

    Thank you all.

    I am in Hartford, Connecticut. I have ordered the parts and will update the thread once the new cap is installed.

    Do not EVEN try to drain the fluid until you get the new part and the old cap off. A tight fitting 6 point wrench or socket is best unless it breaks, then a cold chisel comes into play to tap it counter clockwise. When replacing, snug is good, tight is bad.
