No, there's not enough material.

Its not that there is not enough material to just go with an oversized sparkplug, because drilling tapping and either using a "Heli" or "Recoil" brand coil or a "time-cert" will displace as much material. The issue lies in the needed sparkplug for the application.

I have used the Heli-coil brand coils for years without any issues but most of the motorcycle industry suppliers have started selling the re-coil brand, any way you go just make sure you have someone that has done this type of job before or is a competent technician.
