If you adjusted the oil flow to the clutch, how did you remove the "plug nozzle"?

Hello!
Before i ruin my bike on purpose. im going to remove the "plug nozzle" and adjust the flow to my clutch. im planning on drill a hole and thread it and pull it out.
but how did you do it any tips?
i tried to drill 5mm deep (not all the way thru) and pull it out M4 thread but that did not work to shallow first attempt.
How deep can i drill without risk going thru and getting dirt inside the axel?
do i dare to drill all the way? M6 maybe?

You can drill all the way through....just be sure to clean out the swarf with a pick and/or a cotton bud.

But, once the plug is removed, you will need to install a modified push pin.
Running the bike without a restrictor will cause the clutch to get too much oil and the clonk from neutral to first will become excessive.
A friend of mine did that, and his bike jumped forward everytime.

When i say modified push pin, i mean that the tranny shaft has a 0.5mm lip inside of it. That lip, is to stop someone hammering the aluminium plug too far into the tranny shaft.
The new (current) push pin with 3 grooves will not fit the transmission shaft without reducing its diameter slightly.

thanks! well then ill drill all the way then! I had the idea that ill cut larger grooves in the plug and reuse it after i seal the extraction hole with a screwplug (screw without head). ive heard about exxessive oli can ruin it also and there is a difference in the clutch center. the newer ones got oil drain slots beneath the steel support ring for the "spring" so i added that to my old basket, hopefully they work otherwise ill have to go for the full replacement to a newer basket and center pin.
