Spark Plug Blew Out - Vulcan 900
A buddy has a Vulcan 900 (2007 I think) that he said blew a spark plug on the rear. No clue how that is possible. Cannot get it started at all. He removed the rear valve cover, the valve shims and the exhaust. Trying to fix it, then gave up. Happened a year or so ago, been sitting ever since.
No idea how it happened or even if that is actually what happened. He said there was loud noise and it died. Went looking and found the plug was not in place and black/crusted. Can screw a new plug in, but will not fire up.
I have the opportunity to get the bike for next to nothing but do not want it unless it is a relatively inexpensive or relatively simple repair. I'm fairly good mechanically, but no pro.
