Hey all.....a friend of mine has a 99 yz 400....this weekend he took a dump and sheered half the "TIMING" bolt.....left side.....above the crank case bolt....Im sure you know.....question is.....I went to Ty Davis to look for a billit one....only because the bolt it self "STOCK" is made of plastic....no avail.....anyone know where to find a "STEEL" one?
BTW, we ride trails......in New England....lots of rocks! hahaha
Thanks for your help in advance....

Some people may have been confused by your reference to a Plug as a Bolt. My advice is to have your friend learn not to screw things up when working on them, or not to let you do anything else for him, whichever one best applies.
