I took it off and the screw is loose and will not even produce a spark now. LESS THAN AN HOUR ON THE PART mind you. Well I shot thatsdax an email about it and the order number we will just see how this gets resolved. I've been waiting over a month to get my bike back in order and I did then less than an hour later a brand new park fails.

sorry about sounding harsh
Note that runnung the ignition without plug attached can cause CDI failure. It's very risky looking for spark by holding plug against engine. Better to wire it to bars or frame while checking spark.
