Hello!

So I'm trying to resurrect, aka learn, about bringing vehicles back to life. So I got this bike from my dad and it hasnt ran in ~2 years.

So I first took a the fuel out of it, stank pretty bad.

Then I started to take the spark plugs out to look at them. Then the spark plug wire came out from the spark plug boot. The boot is the thing that covers the spark plug.

How do I reconnect the two?

PICS!
the two together


the spark plug boot, note the screw looking at me...


unfortunately an "exploded" view



Thank you!

It's my experience that when this happens you get a new wire. Have a look inside the small end of the small boot. This is where the wire is mated to the connector and then screwed in to the large plug connector. Like I said, I would just go and get a new one. This way you're certain that you won't get any arcing or power loss from a bad spark.

I wish I was smart like Corsair. My first thought was 'grab the duct tape and some glue'. . . :eek:

If you try to repair it will never perform correctly, time to buy new plug wires :)

You're all wrong. It needs new plugs and wires.

What kind of bike is it?
