    Bought a Stratus - Has a small inside area for the engine components - Had to modify the spark plug and bend the left foot crnk out a little. Still need to make an intake filter - surprisingly this will not need a tension wheel - its like perfect. - The new engine kits being sold seems a little less well made than the ones 2 years ago.
    update: added pics of the spark plug mod (you unscrew the cap and screw in an eyelet). - The air filter was too big - so removed the guts and mounted. - Got her started after replacing w a new spark plug - one this came with was some real junk...

    DSC00177.jpg DSC00180.jpg Thats ok - Got the idea for the eyelet from model T spark plugs - Got the kit for 142 bucks - couldnt pass it up. Seen some buy it nows on ebay in the 130's... I still have to true up the back wheel on the new one..

    Couldnt true up the back wheel for nuthin - the more I tried the worse it got and more frustrating it got... soooo made a rear wheel out of a front wheel - see new post... - now I can actually ride it..

    I like the build, and actually have a suggestion that may suit you to clear some space around the plug.

    Cross the number at an autoparts store or online, because we got a low profile NGK for the first bike i built and it saves a solid 1.5" over a tall plug like that. Not that we were tight on space, but I like things compact.

    Shown is the modified air cleaner, the spark plug... also back section is made from a piece of painted 2x4 wood and the brackets off of some shop lights. The rear wheel is actually made from a front wheel !!

    jack that was I who said turn the head around it gives you a lot more room to take plug out.Well here's the best ngk plug I think most used on theses ngk B6HS.

    The plugs got a screw on tip like most of them,you can get them at o'reily auto parts store.If you turn your head around you can just use a regular old style plug wire a 90 degree boot on the end.Then you can un screw the wire in the cdi box,and screw the new wire back in.This site has a lot of people that can help you just ask .

    Thats what I was gonna check to see if the tip unscrewed... if not just use a die to make threads... or grind it. - Dont like to ask questions - keep seeing comments like "wish people would use the search first before asking questions" - so I just go with the flow - but guess it would be monotonous replying to the same thing over and over... not ready to remove the head - then it would be new gaskets... trying to keep costs low as possible until really have no other choice.. thx dude!!
