    RSV Mille 1999

    Hi, I bought a 1999 RSV mille ( Swaped my Laverda 750S for it) monday this week. I left it a couple of days ,and now it wont start, I have managed to take the two rear plugs out, they were a bit sooty and wet with petrol, I also took out the bottom plug, ( now I cant line it up, do I need to take the air box of to give me mo acces to put it back in, the three I got ot are sparking now that I have cleaned them, and gapped them. Do I also need to take the top front one out ? regards ST2

    Remember doing mine , the only real pain is the front rhs . You dont have to take the airbox off but I know what you mean , just a bit of patients and swearing and it will go in .

    I did find it much easier with the airbox personnaly.
    The front right handside one is more difficult due to the poor access.
    You will need a the plug socket, an extension (and swive/pivot bit I think), problem is the frame is only a few inches away, so if your extension is just a bit too long, you may not be able to get the ratchet in the space available.


    I found mine had been incorrectly tightened by whoever did it before me.
