Spark plug problems
Posted May 30, 2004 - 06:02 AM
My problem this far getting the bike started. The first times it went well and one kick was enough to get it started. I reved it some and warmed up the engine but I did not ride the bike ( I live in a city). Next time it wouldnt start at all. There was nothing. I removed the spark plug and it was very black and dirty. Cleaned it up and put it back there and got the engine runing again. The next day it was all the same...couldnt get it starded. Cleaned the sparkplug and started it again. Im not sure but is this what you guys refer to as "fouling" a spark plug? In that case....whats up with my bike? I will get a new spark plug and see if it works.
As I said I havent really ridden the bike so i asume the fuel mixture is pretty rich at those rpms.
Also...I read at motoman's site about pulling out the lightblue cable to get a stronger spark. My question is then....could this damage my bike in any way? What does this blue cable do exactly?

I think if it the engine only gets warm there is no problem with fouling. Ill get back when I have tried the bike where it belongs!
