Lost timing plug

6 posts in this topic

At the track today, I found a boot covered in oil and no timing plug on my 06 yzf 450. Is there a better aftermarket product or should I just replace it with a factory ?plastic one and check it frequently. I don't think I lost to much oil.

Buy aftermarket ones, like the Works Connection or GYT-R ones. The stock ones are made of lame plastic, and if you go just a tiny bit too tight when putting them back in they chip and its hard to get them tight the next time.

I put a little silicone on the outside just for a peace of mind. When I need to take them out the silicone just peels off.
