Re: Running problem driving me nuts!

Re: Running problem driving me nuts!

@embee - Wow! that is good to read. I had ordered a pair of std plugs anyway, so I'll certainly get back and tell you if they are the silver bullet.

Re: Running problem driving me nuts!

Anyway, I've changed the ht cap now, so we'll see if it makes a difference. The plugs look lovely (clean and colour) and similar too.

Re: Broken Radiator Bolt - SV650 1999

I just replaced my horn with a bigger louder one - I'm a bit worried about the mudguard clearing it on full compression. Any ideas R1ffR4ff?

Mine's same as yours.
