I have 03 500ex and I flushed the fluids new filters new gas new head gasket and plugs cleaned carbs and bench set, I had it running now it wont . I changed batteries. I rode the other day for few hours then dies in highway this has happened several times now. It is only running one cylinder I noticed cold exhaust on left side. I replaced head gasket then got it to fire but died instantly now won't start I noticed plug wasnt fired at all changed coils n plugs from each other n same thing but now I see my plug on right is stripped out is this my main problem

ok worst problem first;
the stripped plug will need the head removed again to take to a machine shop for a Heliers coil insert to repair it.
You didn't mention that you lapped the head so I assume you haden't . therefore please read my piece in the hoe too section "lapping the head to repair a gasket failure .
plug repair inserts and tools can be had at most car parts store. but a fair amount of shill is required. (machinist type)
