    Torx Driver Oil Drain Plug GT

    Anyone know where I can buy the M24 Torx bit for the oil drain plug?
    I've searched all over with no success.

    Thanks,

    Peter

    EMSimon, are you sure it is a T-24 size? I don't think it exists, only a T-25, T-30, T-35, T-40, T-45, T-50 or T-55 size are on BMW motorcycles. Regardless, you can go to Sears or Amazon to get anything you need.

    I wasn't asking and the OP said M24. I have not seen a T-24 either. Just came back from Home Depot and they have all the Torx bit sizes you can think of.

    My bike has a 24 mm hex like nut for drain plug. If you have a torx female, I am sure it is larger that size 24. I wish mine was a female allen type. The hex, you have to be very careful to make sure the socked is square before loosening or tightening.

    "24" has to be a typo, or it's some other type of head (Jack Bauer?). I've looked at Sears, Snap-On, and Home Despot, and no T24 bits.

    Maybe there's just a buildup of crapitation on the inside of the socket...? Solvent and a pick... Or maybe the OP is actually incorrect in that it's not a Torx, but an abused Allen.

    There are indeed oddball sizes available (T6, 8, 27, 47, 55; and external sockets in T12, 14, 16, 22, and 34; and mini-Torx for electronics), but I don't think we use them.

    Yes, there's no such thing as T24.

    There is E24 (external torx)

    This may or may not be helpful but the oil drain plug on my '13 F800GT uses a 10mm allen wrench.
