I bought my KLR cheap because the oil drain plug hole was stripped and it scared the guy.
I just ran a 1/4" pipe plug (NPT- national pipe thread) through my stripped hole while pouring a steady stream of oil through the engine to flush the chips as I went. No drilling needed as the hole is already the right size for the tap.
Cost me two quarts of oil and a fifty cent pipe plug. You can get pipe plugs with Allen heads so they sit flush with the case once installed. You have to use Teflon tape, but it's easier to source than crush washers anyway. I had the tap on hand, but you can pick those up for about $5.
Not glamorous, but cheap,easy and effective. Just a thought.
