Thanks. Yes, these plugs are the same as the ones that came with the bike. They came with a standard service kit, plugs, filters, that sort of thing. In my CX,I have iridium plugs. They too have been great! Just wondering if they would be good in the K bike, if I swopped out the leads for resisterless ones, like on my Honda.


What do you think?

Electricity is not my forte so it would be better to ask somebody else. As far as I know, you have to have a resistor somewhere but I do not know, what is the difference of having it in the cable or in the plugs.

Iridium plugs are a waste of money in old bikes apparently, although this could spark yet another 'what kind of oil' war.

I thought you said, you replaced the plugs with the one ordered from motoworks? If you have a set of resistor-less, try them and you will see, if that wakens the bike if not, get the proper type, they are cheap and I am sure a larger Halfords stock them

Iridiums great in my 1982 cx.Just wondered out a 1986 K.

You got it going yay👍

Did you reconnect the hose to the valve or are you running a hose through the filler cap opening?

If you reconnected to the valve and it finally started and ran but stopped again the valve is probably blocked again. Clean it again. The whole fuel system probably wants a good clean.

Yes, I will find time to take the tank off, and internals out and go through it all again. I must say, it was still quite hard to start. I’m wondering about breaking the jb weld seal and unbolting it to take it out to clean. I suppose I could reseal it again, or look into why it may have been leaking in the first place. Not sure if it has blocked again, as I have put the filler cap back on, and the battery is now flat. ‘It’s on charge, and on a tender’ (Johnny). Hopefully, it blocking itself, is the reason why it won’t start again. I am going to have to start at the beginning and be more methodical, I think.

Hey szabgab,  just as a side note I'm curious about your title, it looks like a shortening of your names with your family name first. I have a friend from Hungary and Im thinking her family name is the same as yours.


Dave that's right,  my name is Szabó Gabriel,  as we have our names the other way around and my scren name is just a short version out of laziness :)  Szabó is a very common Hungarian surname,  similar to what Smith is to the English

Good plan :)  Try to run the grass trimmer wire I mentioned earlier through every pipe in the tank,  feed,  return,  overflow,  drain,  the lot

yes, I will.



I normally use a high ‘E’ string from my electric guitar, when cleaning the galleyways in carbs.Same sort of thing.

Goodo I guessed szabo only because our friend has the same name and was guessing Gabriel too yay again👍

I'm guessing you got the spare tank with the bike and your problem may be why the previous owner got it.

You could possibly use the spare tank but it looks like the early version tank so is fixed differently at the back and the electrical plug is probably different.

Another option, sell your spare tank and buy a suitable one.

Nup.

I'm thinking after a good clean put another new filter in,  it's cheaper than three blocked injectors.
