81 XS850sh Yamaha Triple

hey bro to tap that stripped plug hole do I have to pull the motor or try to cheat some how to get the head off ? do not really want to chance getting shavings in the cylinder

Hi Pete,

Off hand I can’t say for sure if the head can be pulled from the XS triple without yanking the motor. I’m pretty sure it can, but I’m not positive.

Another option is to use a small vacuum attachment to suck out the shavings as you twist the tap. But really the safest option is removing the head and doing the work on a bench.

Good luck pete. Let me know how it goes.

thanks evan you is the man bro APPRECIATED
