Engine plug fell out

Does anybody else have this happen to them.

My engine plug on my 05 450F randomly comes loose and falls out while riding, I didnt mess with it prior/ . This is the 2nd time.

have you torque it to the right spec?

from previous bad experiment do not use any kind of tight lock :moon: .

worn plag?

lol was sure it sed spark plug.:cheers:

It only happand to my 06 2 times when i was draging up the dunes in a very hot day. to much pressure in the engine? to hot?

it was tightend down to spec. i did mess with that plug quit a bit when doing the timing chain.

Are you talking about the decompression plug on the front of the motor?

I had the upper timing plug come out when I was riding. Oil was everywhere. Soaked my boots. My friend saw it. If I was out riding along I'm sure I could of seized it up.

I just tighten mine after every ride. They are sometimes a little loose. Ever since I got the works connection anodized plugs they havent budged. Dont know if thats coincidence or if they are designed to not loosen.

The little plug on top of the crank case on the clutch side.
