Hi guys,

I set out to check my timing today & while removing the rear plug, I managed to snap the lead out of the crimp at the plug end. :evil:

My local HD dealer in Walthamstow are useless and do not stock these so my question is.....

Can I make up a new plug lead if I get the bits from say Halfords, or do I need to purchase the stock item which will mean waiting weeks for it? Oh, and they are £10 each from the ripoff HD wasters :shock:

Urgent advice would be appreciated.

Phil.

I know them so well :roll:. I went there for some leads the other week to be told the same thing. Turns out I do not need them so saved myself £20 and lost them a sale :D

Another thing, the plugs were not tightly fitted. The bike was only serviced (10k) a month ago. Should I have a pop at the mech or is this a Buell thing?

Useless isn't the word for them.

They are thick to I noticed. I've only had my Buell for a couple of months and I think I have more knowledge than them.
