Pull them out now, the longer they stay in the worse it will be. I think heat and time makes the locktite more hard. I would get new plugs, or clean the locktite off really good. Not sure if it will damage the threads, you may get lucky.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Well, I was not the one that put my plugs in and when I went to remove them this happened.



I tried tons of ideas from the guys here and after breaking an easy out I gave up and took it to a shop and had them remove it for me.



Only cost about 60 bucks to have it removed.
Here's the tread along with all the suggestions I got. Good suggestions, but in my case they didn't work ... but they are worth a try.

WOW---I thought you may have just broke the porcelain off....
I finally washed my bike the other day and noticed that the +/- 1 YO NGK Iridium plugs had quite a bit of rust on them... I hadn't ridden in the rain and Lord knows I don't wash it but twice a year... Anyway I pulled them and cleaned them up good, then put some dielectric grease on them and anti-seized the threads good then reinstalled...
Don't know why all the rust, it's parked inside a dry hot shed...
Have a good one...Tater...

Everyone does something dumb sooner or later. Get in a hurry, misread, whatever.

Don't sweat it; it's part of the experience.

No one got hurt, including yourself, that's all that matters.

This kind of stuff is to laugh at and have fun with, not beat yourself up about.
