I pulled the plugs on my '84 Aspencade yesterday and was rewarded with a nice velvet brown color, no burns and no build up. When I bought the bike I was told the carbs had just been adjusted. I guess they were not kidding.

I showed the plug to someone more experienced in "reading" plugs and he suggested that I mark (on the ceramic) the side of the plug with the open side of the gap. He said that by lining these marks up with the intake ports (a would assume this to be facing the carbs) that I will get an even cleaner burn. He called this "indexing" the plugs.

Will this make any difference?

Thanks Goldwinger1984!

It seems that all my friends have lots of "helpfull" advice on the care and maintainence of my 'wing. I think it is best to run all those "suggestions" through this forum for confirmation prior to actually trying any of them.

EMMMMMMMM.

Can the bike carry such weight, and still be legally on the road? :cheeky1::action::weightlifter:

I have to trade in the girl friend for a lighter model (100 pounds or less) so I don't exceed the max gross weight for the bike.

What can I say, I quit smoking and started eating!:shock:
