Let me know what you find out. I just did the block off plates, plugged the air box hose hole, had the ECU flashed, new air filter, cut air box, etc. Went to start it, and it starts, and then shuts off after a few seconds. Then try and start, no luck. Turn the key of, and back on several times doing the same thing, and then it'll start and run fine. Try and start it a half hour later, and won't start. Turn on and off, and finally it'll start and stay running. The fuel line is not kinked. I actually have the tank in the up position, which straightens the the fuel line. Could be water in the fuel. Also, I changed the clutch lever, this bike is new to me, and it will actually turn over with the clutch lever not pulled in. I may have some lube in the switch. Whatever it is, it sure is annoying.

Update. New fuel, cleaned the fuel filter on the fuel pump, and replaced the fuel line with the eighteen inch fuel line mod. Starts like a charm now.

Bunch of RED flags
  1. Torque Wrench on a Spark Plug
  2. Pressure washer on a air filter
  3. Loctite glue on broken spark plug

Where did you get all these train wreck ideas

For broken plugs I have had good luck with a large flat head screw driver wedged and turning it slowly.

What ended up being the problem here?
I doubt the wet airfilter was ever the problem, it was most likely a kinked fuel line then snowballed from there.

He has been too busy being teabagged.

Hasn’t logged on months. I’m sure it was something stupid or he would have given an update.

What's the problem with using a torque wrench to tighten a spark plug in an aluminum head?

For the most part nothing, if you know your torque wrench is calibrated. I use one, but usually set it a bit lower than the specified torque. Otherwise, finger tight and (up to) 1/4 turn works too.

There’s no problem when tightening it. But when you try to take it out and you over torqued it and it gets stuck or the ceramic breaks off, then you’re fvcked
