    Re: 2002 xlt 1200

    So your crankshaft is spinning but your spark plugs have no spark. Looks like some electrical trouble shooting is in order. First let me confess I am a home mechanic. Is it fixed yet?

    Re: New guy MR1 question...

    I think it depends on the person as to whether it is a big deal or not. I prefer to have the cap but if not I just view the crevice as a crap trap. As long as the crap stays out of my engine I am okay
