thats total bunk on the heads cracking... there is no real pressure there are a friction fit.. and I'm running Barons kit for 18 yrs. .. so you should be good to go... had the same issue... its hard to get .45acp up here... so I installed the barons kit

More for my convenience than anything else I left the elbows in the heads and plugged them with appropriately sized allen head  machine screws. You have to really be looking for them to even notice.

Good to know.

Sometimes it's hard what to believe!

Thanks for the reply!

Another good option to keep in mind.

Riding season is mostly finished up here.

Will start working on the bike soon.

Thanks for your input.

I've heard the same about Barons plugs cracking the heads. Probably installer error but it's what I've read.

probably because they didn't read the instructions.. to tighten lightly...  mine are still in .. had all sorts of head work down .. and lots of pressure in them cylinders.. it concerns me ... but hasn't broke yet..

I believe the heads were being broken during the install of the plugs for some reason.

Some people can screw up anything. :)
