'83 XR500 problems

when torquing down the head bolts has anyone ever pulled out almost all of the threads in each one of the holes??? :cry: i know im torqing them down right. i have a brand new clicker torque wrench. but monday im going to take my engine to the shop and have helicoils put in everysingle one of the cylinder head bolt holes. then i wont have this problem. talk about being flustered.

pretty common issue on those bikes.especially when the head bolts have been in and out a few times.

Sorry dude, perhaps the previous owner did a big mistake. That's a darn shame. Let us know the results.
