Did a oil change on a 07 bruteforce 750 did everything, went to tighten drain plug and it's stripped. Ive got it as tight as it can get for now but it's leaking. What's my next step?

I concur with NMKAWI, I did the same with my turbo neon aluminum oil pan. Make sure as you tap the stripped hole in preparation for heliCoil-you run the tap all the way through, then carefully re-align and back tap out. This allows a good seat for the heliCoil, in my humble opinion.

p.s. NMKAWI: you really blow me away with how you answer everyone’s questions, in double time no less! Very selfless, super knowledgeable- my hat is off to you🤩
