    Cheers Dai - I knew that I would get at least one sensible answer - even if it did seem a bit of a stupid question ..

    on my CRM I used to change the spark plug every 6 months or so - it would become hard to start - especially in the winter ... a friend of mine recommended 2 different type of spark plugs - one for the winter and one for the summer ..

    I would chuck a new spark plug in her and she would start on first kick

    nothing to do with lazy or english - just slight mis-diagnosis ...

    I mean come on GAGA is a 10 year old bike .... she needed a look at the carb and stuff anyway ...

    just happy to report she is back up on her back wheel as she is accustomed to wheelie
