Trying to track a problem.
Apparently I have no spark. On other bikes I am used to taking out the plug, sticking it back in the cable and kicking the engine to check for a spark while the plug is out.
I've got a new bike with a plug cable that has a metal sleeve which extends down to the nut on the plug.
I've got no spark BUT does that sleeve inhibit the normal way I could check for a spark - ie earth/ground it in some way so it doesn't show at the end of the plug or when the plug is touched against the metal body work?
