Help!! (please)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Went to start my 2006 DRZ4SM this morning and it's making a popping sound and shooting the spark plug boot/wire right off the plug every time. 

In need of some opinions as I just replaced the plug not too long ago and things were running great.

Thanks in advance!

Make sure the plug is tight. If it isn't, it is possible the compression is allowing forced air past the plug threads and forcing the wire off.

That's exactly what it was. I failed to tighten it enough when I changed it out. Running like a champ again. Thanks!

I know...that would suck!
