    no problem, you need both, as in two fittings, one is a plug the other is the socket.

    Right guy's i am all ready to fit the new plugs and coil sticks, when you push the stick over the plug should it "click " in or just fit in, i am used to ordinary plug caps that seem to click over the plug. they are not benelli sticks but everything seems the same ( size etc) also i take it the plug goes in without the small cap, i am asking as when i took 1 out there was just the threaded section showing and i am not sure if the cap was stuck in the stick. cheers

    Ron d the berg replacements I had clicked onto the top of the threaded top of the plugs . I would also highly recommend sealing the rubber boots with a suitable sealant so to stop water getting in .

    Right new plugs ( iridium ix ) and 3 new coils sticks started first time so just a couple of bits to put back on then take it for a bit of a test ride, only problem i had was refitting the tank got the 2 back bolts in loose but it was too far forward to fit the 2 front bolts what a pig in and out about 5-6 times before i got it to fit i think it was just the cables etc underneath fouling and stopping it going back about 2-3mm.

    Hi Guys. My Tre-K went onto 2 cylinders today. It happened suddenly as I was going past a service station in a country town, so I pulled into the servo and topped up with fuel (it as getting pretty low and I thought it might have started to suck air). When I re-started it was still running on two. I was about 18km from a friend's place, so limped there on two cylinders. The right-hand pipe was cooler than the others, so that was the problem cylinder. I let the bike cool down while we had a cup of tea, then re-started it and all was good - back to 3 cyls. So I took off to go the remaining 37km to my place. Got about half way when it dropped onto 2 cyls again, presumably as things warmed up again. Limped the rest of the way home on 2.

    Does that sound like a typical failure mode for a coil?

    I've only had this bike for a couple of months and this is the first issue I've encountered - apart from the injector light coming on regularly, but I believe that's a common foible with these bikes.

    Cheers,
    Cam

    Thanks Engenia

    After a bit more browsing of this forum, it seems my injector warning light comingon may have been a related to a possible failing coil. It was on pretty much constantly during today’sride.

    I'll delve under the tank tomorrow and see what's going on.
