Primed it and kicked it over once and it fired right up as usual. It ran for about 15 seconds with the choke on and then idled down, and stalled and that was all she wrote. Even though I knew in the back of my mind it was the plug, I still kicked that beast over about 30 or 40 times thinking it may have been flooded... Man, I've never been that whooped after a ride ever. This thing is a beast when its being uncooperative. The plug had been in there since i got the bike about 6 months ago, so I feel I got my money's worth out of it. I slapped a new one in and it fired right up on the first kick again. Btw, this thread has no point, just felt like whining about my sore right leg.
