First of all Hello. Now... I was changing the antifreeze on my ng900 today, everything went smooth... until the end, when i broke the plastic off the draining plug!!!

Welcome!

Hmm, I'm not sure. Did you just break the extension part that can take a hose? If so, it's probably fine, but check it often at first to be sure. Many of us have never bothered with this wimpy and hard to find plug - it turns out that it's easier to just remove the lower radiator hose instead.

Welcome fellow newbie.. It sounds like you just broke the exterior portion of the drain****, which should be fine as long as it seals, there are no drips right? You can pick up a replacment and change it out later with a minimum of coolant loss when you have the part at hand

Thank you for your help. No, there are no leaks, i think i overdone it trying to seal it, that's why it broke of... I just hope that it won't start leaking...
