This has happened to too many folks for it to simply be a one off coincidence.
Unless you know WHO exactly, for the life of the engine, has touched that bolt, all bets are off...

I have been the ONLY person to do oil changes on my engine, now 11 years old, the threads are fine... Same for the bike..

I've NEVER stripped an oil drain plug in 47 years, a good part of them in aluminum...

It takes ONE person to screw them up...(dealer, PO, current owner, etc)
