About time I got round to it; ordered the replacement plug (note singular) over a month ago. The bike's done about 21,000k since I bought her new, and with such small engine it's nice to keep things running sweet. Trundled off to port80's this arvo with plug and assorted tools. Ended up using port's tools mainly, usually seems to work out that way... Didn't carry a garage on my back unlike the last spanner day. Got my bike naked in good time, having already worked out the side panels earlier this morning. http://www.joshuahawcroft.com/josh/pic_archive/plugs24feb2008/rimg0115.jpg Looks like an over-augmented bicycle! After much twisting, groaning, several tool changes and the odd 'ouch' moment (the bike was still reasonably hot at this point) I carefully extracated the old plug with a pair of long-nosed pliers. Port quickly came to my aid and checked the gap on the old plug, before accidentally making it several mm wider and out-of-spec. Thanks mate!! http://www.joshuahawcroft.com/josh/pic_archive/plugs24feb2008/rimg0116.jpg After double-checking the new one myself, it was carefully wound into it's new home. Eons later and a half turn to tighten, the plug was installed. I reattached the fuel tank, fuel line, side panels and seat. Ignition first time and I'm sure she sounded slightly happier. :grin: Ohh, and I've just ridden her home from Tarneit to Kingsville and she hasn't started leaking petrol or shooting flames out the side so I must have done something right! Thanks to port for his garage and tools, and ronin for jamming your fingers under the petrol tank.
