  1. Well I had to re tap the drain plug hole. still leaks so maybe new plug is alittle small? anyways now I am having overheating issues. While going up an incline water pretty much boils right out the top of the radiator and out the drain tube. Do i need to flush the radiator? or could it be the water pump? help me out here guys oh ya and the bike, before i got it, hada 426 head put on

    Hey thanks guys for the comments. Helps out alot! Jeez tried to drain the oil this morning and the guy i bought the bike from must of put 8,000 lb of torque on that drain plug. haha Not to mention the plug was already stripped. So we had a hell of a time trying to get that plug out. Finally got it out to find that the drain hole is all stripped out. So now I have to figure out what to do next! Welcome to the world of motorcycles huh! haha
