Hello again cylinder head issues, this time just a stripped valve cover stud thread. A trip to the machine shop is in order but that also means time for its full valve seat overhaul. Along with the valve overhaul I've opted to go for dual spark plugging which seems like a good idea so i can avoid future issues with heat spots and better this engines chances of survival.
Specifically this is for a 1981 R65 with roughly 27000 miles on it. This is 50 miles after having rebuilt the engine and all looks well internally but unfortunately I tore the threads for the center stud right out of the cylinder head. picture related.
I'm interested in hearing peoples experiences with dual-plugging, how did it go for you, what parts, any noticeable differences afterwards. As far as the beancan, its already electronic timing, do i need to upgrade/modify that? Likewise, is my charging system going to need more juice? There doesn't seem to be a definitive best course of action according to Snowbum's except for spending an exorbitant amount of money so just looking to hear what other people thought about the process on their own bikes and possibly parts list of all the things I'd need to order to get it taken care of.
I am a college student as well so the more cost effective the better, time spent on my part is not an issue.
