Hey Guys the other day i was doing an oil change on my monster and was trying to torque my drain bolt but accidently over torqued it and in result i crushed the sealer and stripped the threads because the plug is tight but still turns without any force. It leaks only a little bit. I hope all i have to do now is bring it in to get rethreaded and get a new washer sealer. What are your thoughts on this could anything else be damaged?

Thanks

I don't know if you used the service manual but the early version for this generation of Monster 696/796/1100 stated 42Nm for the oil drain plug. It was a left over from the previous generation of 2v which uses a bigger drain plug.

The correct torque value for the oil drain plug on your Monster is 20Nm.

Bring it to a pro to get it fixed.

This is what many use to fix damaged drain plug threads.

And i am pretty sure thats not the drain plug (the smaller of the two)
That's right that's not the main drain plug but I've used that one before for taking out a little of overfilled oil when servicing, i found it was a little less messy that way.

A torque wrench and service manual are allways handy in this cases.
