Maxxer 450i question
« on: November 29, 2017, 06:54:56 PM »
I just bought a 2014 maxxer 450i basket case to fix up where the motor was locked. I'm missing various bolts and stuff but there's a hole in the side they took something out that has me perplexed. If it was a car I'd say it was a freeze plug but wondering if anyone can tell me what goes in there. attaching a pic with it circled in red.

It's dark now but if I can remember I see if I can find it tomorrow on my MXU 450.

Not as easy as I thought it would be. The exhaust runs right by it. I can see the hole but not inside it. tried to take a picture with my phone, it wants to focus on the exhaust. If it is threaded I would say an allen screw is countersunk in it because it is pretty small. Try again with a mirror and my glasses.

Tried again with glasses, mirror and strongest LED flashlight I have, It is a bad angle to view. If there is anything threaded in there it is recessed just enough I can not see it. If you have the cylinder head off is it threaded?

I tried a couple metric bolts and nothing threaded. I reckon when I get it all back together and if coolant comes out it I'll plug it with something. jb weld to the rescue maybe.
