My gear oil fill screw broke off as I was tightening it! It now leaks a lot of oil out of the fill plug when I ride it. Any ideas on getting the shaft out and what to replace it with?? Thanks See pics

you can drill em out or you can buy drill bits to remove them

They're plastic, you can typically just use a flathead to turn it out.

As for replacements, reach out to doscycles.com and see if they have some back stock

if its plastic, heat up a flathead screwdriver and push it in, then turn it out after cooling down

Great idea! I’m going to try heating up a screwdriver. It is plastic and I ordered a new one on dos cycles. Should be here in a few days. I’ll skip the chewing gum idea.
