    Spark plug boot coming off

    Hello!
    ive been having an issue with my '94 vxr pro where after about 40 minutes or so of riding, the boot pops off of the spark plug. It's happened the past 3 or 4 times riding, and I have no idea what could be causing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Does the boot securely clip on? Sounds like you need some new wires.

    Yes, the boot does clip on and is nice and snug on there. Seems like it happens when I ride it hard. Also, it's not even like it wiggles off a little bit. The boot will be completely off as if something forced it off.

    I had the same problem with my old 93 Pro VXR. I think that the little retainer clip that snaps onto the plug goes bad with time, but do not know for sure.

    What I did to solve the problem was to spray the inside of the boot and the plug with brake parts cleaner to get the oil off, then I tie-wrapped the boot on to the plug. Aside from it looking funky, I had no problems after that.

    Back in the early 90's racers did this .......just because.

    Okay cool. I had considered zip tying it, but wasn't sure if that would be a good idea or bad in case something irregular was causing it to come off. Thanks!
