Went to change the oil on my 6500 today and without thinking used a 1/2" socket to get the drain plug out.
It uses a 12 mm and I rounded the drain plug where nothing would grab the plug. I tried pliers which made it worse but finally figured out to take the black heat shield off which is held with 5 bolts (10mm) and was able to grab the drain plug with a 12mm socket. With this heat shield off it exposed about another 1/3 of the drain plug bolt.
I have always kept a spare drain plug and a few washers handy in my parts draw and glad I did.
Maybe this will help some one else that has this problem.
