hey yall. my bike was running fine at the BBQ11 this last weekend in kalamazoo. so i get it home, and taking it out of my friend's car, i notice one of the wires came apart. so we cut it and put it back together and taped them with electrical tape. so it ran when we started it. then, after he left, it wouldn't run at all.
so i replaced the spark plug (i went from a bosch super to a champion) since my other plug looked a little fouled. still didn't work. then i cleaned the points, still no spark. do you guys think it's a wiring issue or a timing issue? or maybe something else all together?
also, this probably sounds really dumb, but on the bosch super spark plugs, there is a silver cap on the end (that goes into the boot) that screws off. on the champion plugs, they have the silver cap, but it does not screw off. does this matter at all? i've never used anything but bosch supers.
