My stealer did not tell me about replacing the plugs and air filters @ 7500 /11000 miles and I am at 12K miles now, so I decided to take it into my own hands. Have the bike apart (Pic 1) but need advice on the following points:
1.) One plug and plug wire head were corroded with white crust. Why is that???? What is the best way to clean the spark plug wire head inside the tube:dontknow:?

2.) On the gear/clutch side air filter housing, I removed it and this part (Pic 2/3) popped out of somewhere:eek:??? WTH??

3.) Teletubbies is not a cool theme for Ole Yeller(pic 4):joke:!!!

pic 2/3 that is the lower airbox spacer. it goes between the block and the bottom most airbox mount. run the bolt through it than into the block. large flat part towards the airbox.

as far as the white powder goes that probably is corrosion. i would take a small wire brush (like a small battery term cleaner and clean the end out with that. and before you reassemble put some di-electric grease in there. that will make you connection better and prevent the corrosion from happening again.

Thanks again Bro and have a good weekend.

Michael, don't forget that it has 4 spark plugs. Some people think it only has 2.
