Woulda been nice if the guy who owned this bike before me didn't steal the fucking spark plug wrench out of the tool kit...

Many, many of the 950s were sold without a plug wrench in the tool kit. I know more 950 owners who bought a new bike without a plug wrench than with a plug wrench. And, it's a bitch to get that front plug out.

Walmart? Lowes? MAC Tool Truck? Snapon?

Get a regular thickness one and grind it.

Just some thoughts............

I made a huge impression on unaweep.

Swap the coils front to rear see if the problem moves.

I have a spare coil set if you need one for testing. PM me and let me know.
