V-Strom specific discussion / Crash protection
« Last post by Graham B on Today at 09:24:10 »
I was thinking of the best way to protect my bike in the event of crash. Any ideas of how to protect my 2016 V Strom 1000?

Been fettling the new bike, in general just ACF'ing everything. Fitted some bar risers (up and backs because I'm short). Had the first service on Saturday and had the main stand fitted - spur of the moment bought the KTM bashplate - What an absolute Bast**d to fit.

Then promptly dropped her in the garage!  :angry-banghead: luckily the mirror took the brunt of it - missed all the crashbars and tank :) Not too bothered about dropping her as this is my off road bike - however not in the garage!

One more thing. I guess I need to check with the Suzuki dealer for the original parts, as all four spark plug caps are different (one is very tall, one is angled, and so on).

The new plugs might have come with the little screw tops on them and the plug caps will only fit when these have been removed. So it's worth checking. If they have and the plug caps still don't fit securely then a new set of caps will be the answer.

Easiest is to replace the cap and future problems with it are solved. Sometimes the contact lug inside the cap can be closed up a bit, to make better. To do this, unscrew the cap from the plug lead. Use a flash light to look inside at the condition of the cap lug internals. Depending on the condition of the cap and the type of cap that you have on your bike, you may be able to tweak the contact lug a bit with a narrow screwdriver. Take care that you don't damage the rubber casing. Also take note, that the tip of the spark plug (where it makes contact with the plug cap) is screwed up tightly. For what it's worth, replace the cap. Way easier and less hassle in the long run.

V-Strom specific discussion / Spark plug cap problem
« Last post by Staffan on Today at 05:03:49 »
As I was replacing my spark plugs yesterday, I noticed that one of the caps didn't sit firmly on the spark plug. There was no resistance when pulling it off.

Is it possible to fix the cap somehow, or do I need to purchase a new one?

I have a 2007 V-Strom 650 with four spark plugs.
