Redoing the floor in a bathroom with porcelain tile. Actually, she's doing the floor, I'm just breaking tiles... See how many trips I have to make to Lowes today...
I WILL get a ride in somewhere. Hope it's not a tile run to Lowes though...

Did you see the Sprint that I posted in the CL thread? Sell off the orange money pit and go Triumph.

Wait a minute...I forgot how many performance awards you got on the CBR. Maybe a Sprint isn't a good idea after all.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy...

The ktm hasn't been a money pit. Been a great bike up until now, and this has got to be something stupid. Everything tests out like it should work, then it doesn't make a spark.

That being the case, I'm going to go along with the "something stupid" part. If your CDI is good, your coil is good, etc, you've got the plug wire munged up somehow. Make absolutely sure you've got a good connection from the wire to the coil and that the boot is connected to the wire properly.

Then go get this tag.
