  4. regarding wd40 , this product is oil and water based and will wash off leaving no long lasting benefits.Try Wurth dry lube this leaves a dry teflon film which will not attract dirt and will give long lasting protection
  5. I wouold go for the hotcams as it is easy to fit , i did mine in about 2 hours the only bit that takes time is re-shimming. it makes the bike a doddle to start.
  6. Helicoil is great but has the tendancy to come out itself due to it being a spring ,also yhe tang is a bugger to break off when you are fitting the helicoil in situ.Your best bet is to fit a Timesert it is a solid insert that can be fitted in situ with no problems and they do not come out. If you search your local bike or auto shops and find one who uses WURTH products he can get one for you , or if no joy there go to the WURTH USA web site. or check them out on
