Hehe... I've never taken a fork out of a tree unless the seals were toast. Matter o' fact, I've had a lot of miles on the same seals just from changing fluid every season. I've never stripped one of those drain screws; I never even thought to worry about stripping the aluminum. Stupid is as stupid does, right?I personally have never met a person who has ever changed their fork oil using the drain screws. I've changed the oil by taking them apart or dropping them and dumping it but I've never used the screw drains.
