    Do I need to replace the oil pan? 750 GS 2020

    So was attaching a new Touratech skid plate...
    Of course you have to remove some factory screws from the underside of the bike and use those holes to fasten your skid plate with the Touratech hardware. So I obviously removed the wrong bolt from the underside at one point, and oil began draining out. I replaced the immediately, but oil keeps draining out, no matter how much or how little torque I put on the bolt.

    1. Is it possible I "puckered" the oil pan or the gasket by messing with the screw and reattaching it at a different torque from all the other pan screws?
    2. Do you think it would help to drain the engine, remove the whole pan, and re-attach it with a new gasket, using proper torque specs and screw sequence?
    3. Just say screw it and take it in?

    Any and all advice is appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Brandon

    Is this literally the oil drain bolt?

    I removed a bolt and a bit of oil drained out of one the holes when I was attaching my skid plates...it eventually stopped :) (and oil is still in the bike)
    As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.

    I re-read my post and realized I left out a key detail, but I cannot figure out how to modify my original post. My bad, sorry about that.

    Anyway, when I removed the screw, it appeared that oil was coming out of the screw-hole. I later realized that the leak was coming from the oil pan gasket. But no matter how much I loosened or tightened the bolt, it kept leaking.

    If I drain the oil out and replace the gasket and replace the pan with appropriate torque specs, do you think that will solve the problem? Or do I need a whole new oil pan too?

    Thanks,
    Brandon
