    It wasn't cheap, but because of the lack of access I bought myself a 6pt 17mm matco box wrench. Don't want to chance rounding it off.

      I have worked in industrial maintenance all my life and what we have always done whenever we change oil in hydraulic unit resevoirs, any kind of oil tanks, etc, even if it has a sealing washer is coat the threads of the plug bolt with little pipe thread sealent and put the plug in and just snug it good. It will stay in place and be easy to remove everytime. Straight fine threads don't require a lot of torque to stay tight. And the quality of the roadstar engine shows that you just need to over tighten things to stay tight because there is hardly any vibration in the bikes.
      Where ever you go, there you are.

        I'm sorry I meant to say you do NOT have to overtighten things, my big fingers don't work as good as they should sometimes.
