me again.. i figured out it wasn't the plug, but the carb.. cleaned it really well and put back together.. a bit of a problem witht he throttle cable/etc in putting it back together. i also took a suggestion from someone here to spray some starting fluid into the spark plug opening.. she started like a peach..
THE CURRENT PROBLEM: the bike is automatically in full throttle when you start her up.. i think i did something wrong when putting that part of the carb back together. please help.
i ran the bike a few miles this way (not smart i know) and after about 2 miles the carb cover (oovers the air filter) actually popped off and the bike died and now won't start again.
