luf Posted November 26, 2007 Share Posted November 26, 2007 I am telling this in hopes that nobody else does what I did yesterday. I was in the process of adjusting my valves, my first time to do this. As I went to pull one of the plug coil's off I didn't unplug the spark plug wire from the coil. As a result, the part that plugs into the coil broke in half. I tried to piece it back in the coil and then I used electrical tape to keep it in place. This dumb, and stupid mistake ended up costing me $158 in parts. To top that off, it is going to take about two weeks for me to get the new coil and repair kit sent to me. After telling the shop what I had done for a temporary fix they told me that my bike probably would not run right if I tried to ride it. I did start the bike (R1200RT with 12000 on the clock) and to me it sounded OK. Has anyone out there done this same thing? If so, were you able to ride the bike until you got the parts to fix it???
