Did my XB spark plugs today....oh my!
Actually changing the plugs was not too difficult (except I wouldn't trust the torque wrench on the front plug at that silly angle), but removing and refitting the leads was an ordeal. Getting them off the plugs is hard enough, but how do you push them on?
These were new leads fitted by Maz 5K ago (not that I'm asking him now)
Off the bike the leads engage the plug tops with a reassuring click, but once in the frame you struggle to see, feel, or hear anything as the leads are so soft and rubbery (and the noise of the rain on the garage roof didn't help). Had to resort to pulling the end ring out of the boot to convince myself they had engaged the plug top then push the boot over the plug after. Swore I would buy or make up something longer and firmer (said the bishop...) to make insertion easier next time!
Any ideas, alternative brands?
