    Im doing mine as soon as it comes in the mail
    I have a 2022 SE  with <6000 km so im hoping for a looser plug than you encounterd as it seems like yours cooked into place , :084:

    couldnt find any specified torque in the manual so ill use this chart to establish proper tq i guess :084: :084: :008:

    Curious as to how did you go removing the plug!...

    Forgot to come back here when i did it  :745:
    I set my tq wrench to 18lbs and removed the plug without it even clicking the tq wrench

    So mine was not hard to remove at all  :020:
    I changed the oring because i bought a replacement already but honnestly the oring on the bike was perfect and couldve been re used



    Did the job hassle free and ended up on turn out

    Torque wrenches are meant for tightening, not loosening.

    Those plugs are a pain to get off. I stripped the one on my sx. Had to pull the whole damn cover off and drill the damn thing out.

    I know torque wrenches are meant for tightening  :745:
    but they will click both ways , probably not an acurrate reading of how tight a bolt is but i just figured lets see how tight it is and it came off without fighting it luckily

    Torque wrenches are designed for both actions so they can be used for both left and right hand threads...

    I have already planned for this scenario if mine strips in that I will use jbweld with a nut to make a permanent bond on the cover so I could use a socket instead...I know its inevitable that this thing will be stripped at some stage of its life...
