PostSubject: ignition wire   Wed Dec 23, 2009 1:18 am

Goodness greif,,,,,
so today we are having a heck of a ride kq750 and 450 all of a sudden 450 dies everytime we hit water...
Bummer as there is alot of water in the cove

Turns out the ignition wire where it hooks to spark plug is loose goosy.

Not the point where it hookt directly to spatk pluh but in th CAP that goes over plug
The actual tiny cap was seperating hmmm wonder why ???
To fix it :
i screw it in real hard and tape it , but it only works on dry land .
So should i seal it up with caulk or buy a new one or both ?

Im pretty sure water was running down the loose wire into the plug and causing her to shut down.

ARRRRGGGGGGGFG and we were just getting warmed up at 20 mile mark.

By the way roads are open to Birket cematary.

Buy a new wire and use lots of dielectric grease!

Dielectric grease is a must if you submerge one....creek crossings or mud holes...it doesn't matter.

Yeah but i cant get a new wire for a few days it seems , so lok i smashed it back together and it ran great except during stream crossings .I ran it rough going fast over big rocks and jumps .
Do yall think if i took off the plastic greased it on the inside then eletrical taped it all realy well then coated it in silicone then mor tape you think i could do some big rides untill the new wire gets here ?
And also why would it pop off like that ? the ignition wire cam off the screw post inside the plastic housing , i guess it was glued in ....
Seems like i could just re glue it in and great it and what not and be back in buisness.

Oh guyys i forgot to mention NO MORE BACK FIRE ISSUES

I would take it off the plug, fill it full of grease and put it back on good and tight. The grease should dispearse the water for a while.

Hmm so you meen take the pug connector off and fill it with grease thats cool.

Remember the ignition wire pulled out of the plug connector and i rammed it back in and i think thats where the water is getting me.

Like if someone yanked the wire it would just rip off , leaving the plug cap connected to the plug and you would have nothing but a piece of wire .

anyhow im lucky it ran al all.
Im gonna include a ignition wire in my tool kit.....

Most good auto part stores can make you a new wire, then load it up with dielectric grease.
