Re: Help this bike is irritating!
Did you replace that spark plug boot that you taped together?
Go to any auto parts store and buy an automotive quality boot. Solder or securely crimp the conductor of the plug wire into the metal part of the boot and replace the spark plug with a good one, preferably the much recommended NGK brand.
Let us know what's happening.
