A question: How many of you that have done the mod (http://fj-09.org/thread/540/low-profile-drain-plug-install) have cratered your oil pan? How many of you that HAVE NOT done the mod have cratered your oil pan?
 
Don't know how to do a survey or I would do it that way.

Good question. Is the 1/2-5/8" clearance gained really going to prevent damage? It seems to me that most strikes that would reach the stock pan would probably reach the modded pan. Maybe the lack of the centralized point of impact means distributed force and less likely breakage???

The little fin they put on there seems like it does more bad than good. I get the they're trying to protect the bolt but instead if the pan gets hit then it'll just punch the fin straight into the oil pan.
 
I don't know how much of a problem it is for most people though. A lot of bikes should have the same issue... The roads here in CA are in terrible shape though so there are always big dips and valleys with odd mounds sticking up just waiting to hit the undercarriage. Plus goat roads are fun to bomb around on ;)

If its a big diff i might switch pans down the line.... Unless that requires pulling the engine! In a perfect world someone comes up with a simple bash plate and problem = solved.

I wonder if the new pan is also thicker. The 2016 parts fiches are still showing the old model.
What was the part number on the package for the new one?
 
The oil pan should be replaceable without removing the engine. Possibly without removing the exhaust.

I want to see pics of this incredibly simple fix that no one at Yamaha thought of when they were adding that dumb fin! B-|
