I have a quick question. I took my plugs out to squirt a little oil in the cylinders for the winter and I noticed that one wire on each side did not "click" back onto the spark plug. Is there a way to tighten the connection without tearing up the rubber boot?

I've never even looked to see what's in those boots. First off - determine that there is in fact a problem. If you don't get spark on those two plugs in the spring when you start up, then worry about it. If all is well, then no problem.

Inside the boot cap there is a nut type connector that goes over the threads on the top of the plug. Sometimes theres a click and sometimes not. Sometimes I get a pop when pulling the boot of the plug. If the bikes firing fine there should be no problem.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
