Put a bucket underneath and pour the oil back in your bike if there are no metal shavings in it.

Re: What would you call this?

what was the reasoning for even loosening that bolt in the first place?

me and my buddy working on my bike at the same time. his task was to drain the oil. he pulled that bolt out and oil came out so he thought it was right i looked and there was no way because only less than a quart came out so i double checked and of course he didnt remove the drain bolt. my own fault for trusting him to work on the bike but its not a big deal just an easy fix

Re: What would you call this?

it's not your oil drain bolt, that is an access bolt that allows you to insert a oil psi gauge for testing purposes.. you be f-ed. you need another one or it will leak real bad once the oil gets warm. I'm PRETTY sure that is what that is anyway.

Looks like one of the oil galley plugs below the stator cover.
