Default Re: spak plug head comes loose

Get rid of them or you'll continue to have nothing but problems with them.

The kit plug has a threaded portion that is supposed to snap into the kit boot. It is a bad electrical connection prone to failure and poor engine performance. Do not order plugs or plug boots from engine kit suppliers or you'll get the same parts and be back to square one. Replace both with good automotive quality parts and you can forget about spark plug problems.

sweet, thanks! ill def n try to go look at some tomorrow. Also does it matter what size spark plug i can use? Bikeberry had a spark plug that was much bigger for an easier start up
