Neither have I. I am not very concerned because I don't have to buy (and then lose) the anti-seize.

You clearly have not removed many plugs from aluminum heads either

Because if you did, " losing" anti seize would be the least of your concerns

Well that was a joke but I was just asking what you guys did. I don't think that I have owned a vehicle without aluminum heads since I put Trick Flows on my lightning in 1997. That is when I learned about moly requiring less torque on head studs.

Here is the pdf from NGK

Broken spark plug in cylinder head...

I don't need a PDF. If a certain brand of toilet paper said one sheet was all you needed should you follow their recommendation? What exactly makes you think their is free from the ability to seize up? How does it make sense to be so worried about a tq value when seizing is a much greater threat? Ask a few mechanics of they tq a spark plug. Now ask them if they use anti seize on their even if they use Ngk plugs that have a PDF saying it's not necessary. Apply the and don't be an idiot and over tq them. Simple win win

Not trying to get in an argument over spark plugs. I buy them 10 at a time and change them whenever I pull one.

Wow so I just had a major set back. the easy out I was using just broke inside my cylinder also... WTF!? Ok, so this is officially something I can't do on my own now, I really need help, but I don't have any way of transporting my bike to a shop or anything, and I can't afford more than like a couple hundred bucks to fix this. Anyone have a place they recommend or work at that could help me out here. I'll pay, but yeah... now the cylinder head will have to come off and there's a busted easy out in it...

Well I just spoke with Tim (Flyin'Duc) and he said he'll come by when he's free and take it too his shop. I am taking his advise which I really should have in the first place which is to let a pro do this one. I already just went from maybe free work to a slight fee too hundreds of dollars and am not about to risk effing anything up more right now.
