Stripped front axle vent plug, help!

Doing 600 hr service on my 2013 1025r. The vent plug on front axle is stripped. First by a 4mm allen key, then by a Grabit stripped bolt remover bit--which was so hard it basically just shaved away any part of the screw that I could've tried to grab onto lol.

(talking about part no. 20 in this diagram,

I do have replacement vent plugs already, assuming I can get this out without affecting the threads in the housing, I'm good...

Any ideas for getting this thing out? The other side came out fine once I cleaned it...

Did you try an american sae allen wrench...

Find one that fits tight and drive it may get lucky.

I'm guessing it was Metric originally.

If your allen wrenches are worn......slowly sand or grind off an 1/8" or so to get back to an unused area.
