Oil drain washer

I just noticed my oil drain screw is missing the washer. I checked because I had a very slow leak from around the screw dripping from the protective lip in front of it (one or two drops a day). My question now is what are the size and specs of this washer, so I can go buy one? Is there a better option than what comes stock that anyone can recommend?

Also, how practical is it to try to do this without draining all the oil if I can be quick?

Thanks

I would just drain it into a clean container (wipe it nice and clean first) and reuse the oil. You might make more of a mess trying to cover the hole and putting the bolt back in.

12x22x2 is the factory size
Ive used smaller OD washers (20mm or 18mm even I think) from the Honda dealer with no issues

What you suggest makes perfect sense! I will see if the sensible part of my brain wins out when I go to do this job ;)

Lets hope the reason its missing was it disappeared into the last oil change, and not that some of the threads have been stripped, or you'll need some thing like this.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters are more useful than saying the year, for uk owners anyway, as registration year is not always year of manufacturer model.
