Re: Well crap. Spark plug blew out

Way back when my 950 KTM was a youngster and after I discovered what parts had to be pulled of and replaced for normal maintenance pretty much all of them got helicoil inserts in any aluminum pieces that had to have bolts unscrewed and screwed back in on a regular basis . 14 years later I have had no issues with stripped threads and I can tighten things so they don't fall off between check ups . Any thing I plan on keeping around gets whatever it needs to make sure it will stay around and stay together . I had a Penton some years ago ,it came from the factory with helicoil inserts in all aluminum parts , too bad Sachs motors were such a *** , the bike was awsome .
