    In a lot of threads people mention fixing their bikes. What is the most creative or best/simplest you have done?
    I've read threads about stuffing tires with dirt and T shirts to limp home, zip ties galore and soda can mufflers as a roadside repair.I've seen pictures of some inspired custom fixes people have done at home. What's your fix? Your problems could be someone else's solutions.

    My son called me one night on his way home (first build no mods, original plug) and told me the bike wouldn't stay running after he started it and rode awhile. Said the plug wire kept falling off...I told him to hold it while coming home...well he knew better so I told him to secure the plug wire on by either one of two ways.. Now keep in mind he is on the open road.. Look for and use a piece of string and tie the boot to the plug. Take a piece of paper and fold it many times over and slide in the boot while installing the boot. Used paper, made it home without further issues. Next day changed to a NGK plug and a different wire and boot.
