Relax TT I wasn't attacking you I forgot to add :glomp: and the end, my bad.

when you say "wherling" im assuming you mean moving, unless there is a part called a oil wherling? the reason im asking is 'cause I don't understand how the oil would be moving around in the gear box unless your working on the scooter while its running.

Hello the same thing happened to me and im wondering how much labor hours the dealer will charge to get this bolt that snapped halfway inside the gearbox drain hole? attached is what the bolt looked like when i felt it snap from over tighening! please chime in on my options as the dealer said $100 to remove bolt but i feel like could be an under estimate. thanks

100 Bucks seems too cheap, From a dealership.
If they will strongly in writing commit to that good for you Let em do it .
That would mean the shops labor rate has to be under a $100 hour .
I have always been bid jobs by the dealership starting at over a $100 .
I then you tube the repair or look at some of the different forums and just do it myself and take my wife to dinner with the labor savings .

what about a JB Weld or some kind of rubber plug to seal the hole from leaking? The majority of the screw is still in the threads so is that good or bad? I was surprised the bolt was that long, where does the bolt actually go into and why is it so long to begin with?

My Bad
I should have read your post better.
I thought it was inside the case rattling around .
Okay then a 100 bucks is too much for what probably is a ez out type job .
I bought a ezout at harbor freight 2 fix my last snapped off bolt.
20 bucks and 20 minutes and I was back in business .
You could Go ahead seal it for now with a plug .
Take it for a ride check for leaks and then just put a piece of cardboard under your scoot over night.
Like they do at the 20 minute oil change places when they screw up the drain plug .
But that is a temporary fix in a couple thousand miles you will have to deal with it when you change out the gear oil.
