I just got home with my brand new 09 WR450:banana:. Back the truck up the driveway and unload the bike. Take a short trip down the street to check it out:thumbsup: Park it in the garage. Start the truck to move it in the garage and it throws blows a plug out of the head which stripped the threads in the cylinder.:thumbsup:

Let me guess its a ford with a 4.6-5.4, or a v10 right ? Thay only have 2 threads holding in the spark plug in the aluminum head. There is a specific procedure ford uses to change the spark plugs... I am just never going to change mine.
