I have a great little runnig XL70 but now the treads are stripped for the spark plug and it is a wierd thread and the auto parts can not seem to get me the right helicoil. I was wondering it anyone knew of a better sorce for a heilcoil all i need is the helicoil not the tap or instalation tool it is a the plug is a 10X1 (i think i have the numbers in the right order) reach is about 1/2 inch but that is not crucial. but i may use this as an excuse to get a perfomance head and 85cc big bore kit. I am going to make it a mono shock by copying the XR rear suspention, any sugestions on the front to up the preload I was going to cut some PVC and put it on top of the springs to preload them.
