Default Re: Just finished my build- Now some problems

I always use antisieze on my sparkplugs. Not just to ensure it doesnt get stuck in the head but also acts as a seal. Make sure you have it tight enough also. You cant crank it down as with any spark plug you will strip the threads in the head- no fun, but good and snug. Also check for any vacuum leaks. Per Norm I like to put black rtv around the intake (on the shoulder not the area that will meet the gasket in the carb) and then install the carb. Of course routinely check all fasteners on the bike. The vibrations will make things come loose.
