Hi new to the forum,  motorcycle mechanic with a few years experience. First savage I've owned. Actually got to put some miles on it today, it's leaking near the exhaust port,  front of the cylinder. Thought it was a head gasket,  could this plug possibly be the issue?  I had no idea was scrolling through and found this. Second question could this plug do damage if I continue to ride it like this for the next few weeks.


Could just be the nut/stud need cleaning and tightening.

Just got it in the mail thanks again! It's got colder again up here in Canada so I might tackle it this weekend. Just wondering about TDC. Does it have to be at TDC for the plug install?
Thanks

Yes, the engine needs to be at TDC.  If you don't have the engine at TDC, the cam could be holding one of the valves open, and the valve spring can push on the cover and make it hard to remove - and impossible to put back on.  You also will need to check the valve clearance after you have replaced the head plug, and this will require you to know where TDC is located.

Thanks Dave. I have researched it a bit more and yes I figured out why it needs to be at TDC. I'm not sure why I was confused I think I was thinking about a 2 stroke engine lol. I didn't tackle it because I am going to buy the Clymer's manual just to be safe.
Cheers
