Congrats on the MOT.

I have not come across any "spark plug drain hole problem" posts in this forum. Not to say there aren't any. Spark plug drain hole allegedly comes out under the header. But if it's not a problem that comes up on this forum I wouldn't mess with it till it's an issue. Which is hopefully never.

The search function will help you look  :016:
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

FYI, the drain hole on the SV650 is an issue only because the front cylinder is slanted forwards and can collect both debris and water from the front tyre ( if you look up sv325 ), I've never come across a problem on a vertical drain from a plug such as  Versys.

Well thank you Rictus and Anderson , that's a big worry off my mind now.
I just cleaned the headers and exhaust system with astonish oven cleaner paste cream 1 out the pound shop,bought past year just for the exhaust and and been washed with water and GT85 maintenance spray etc looking great out for a ride soon.
Thank you two

No worries, perhaps catch you around Burnham bends  as I play around there at times.
