SOURCE: suzuki drain bolt oil problem !
As for where the oil drain plug is, remove the four bolts that hold the bottom fairing in place and it should be easy to spot.
As for the repair it depends. How bad are the threads damaged?
If it's a single thread and there are at least 5 to 6 threads total, you might be able to run a tap (same size) through the hole and be fine. Just make sure you use a good flexible washer/gasket to reduce the need to torque the plug down.
If it's worse then you have two choices. The first is to carefully drill out the hole and retap it bigger. The second is the same as the first except that tap size will be a bit bigger and you will be inserting whats called a HeliCoil. Follow the link for more info on HeliCoil.
I have used HeliCoils in engine blocks for years and never had a problem.
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!helicoidal bolt i need ! thanks again !!!!!!!!!"
I am not familiar with your set up but what you describe is very common.The bad news is you have probably bent your clutch push rod and have broken your crankcase. Which means complete disassembly of the motor and weld the case or replace the case. Perhaps an ebay or salvage motor with a good case? Good luck you have your work cut out for you.

Check the diagram below to be sure all parts are present. The nut should be tightened to 43 foot pounds torque. Be sure the lock washer tab holds the nut in place.

the clutch adjuster on the engine, not the cable adjuster, the unit behind the cover where the cable enters on the engine left side sat on bike, loosen the cables, remove the cover and loosen the 10 mm nut, get flat driver and screw the pin in till you meet resistance, then a tad midges dikc more, then back off quarter a turn, keeping the pin from moving with driver use 10 mm spanner hold driver tight and tighten the nut, it sounds like the adjuster needs loosening, as it is operating the clutch.
