Spark Issues and fixes
I would like to start a thread for spark issues and fixes. If anyone has had an issues with thier spark can you please post it and what the fix (troubleshooting) was so we can all refer to this as a reference page. I would like to keep it as an issue/resolve in the same post to keep the thread short and easier to look threw.

Its a shame the aftermarket groups actually see the real problems with the spark.
-Oil pressure sensors = Not sure why
-Thermostats lock up = Not sure why
-MAP sensor faults = Not sure why
-Hose clamps loose = Replace with T bolt or just tighten
-Wire loom rub throughs/breaks = Use cable ties where factory missed them / PD missed them
Just to list a few

Is this just problems that surface after the skis are modded or on all sparks?

thats what warranty is for I guess...
But with the top off you can see where problems would happen before they do.
Such a nice ski to work modifications on... Probably have had the top off at least 15 times on various sparks here.

Yes on screws, you just need to use minimum torque to maintain integrity of plastic thread.
Seal is fine for re use, maybe with a lot of hours they need changing.
The plastic washers are useless after a few times on / off.

Just wanted to quickly chime in on some minor issues I recently ran across.
Opened up last weekend to search for the missing TB wire harness locking clip, that caused my limp mode the previous weekend when that connector slipped away from the throttle body. While looking around, I noticed that one of my air box straps disconnected from both ends....Surely the root cause of the broken connector. I pulled the battery up, and replaced the strap, securing with zip tie this time. Went ahead and used zip ties on all ends of every rubber strap, wondering why this wasn't already done at factory.
Found quite a lot of rubbing on loom cover under manifold. Coolant hose rubbing on port rear motor mount....so remedied that with sandpaper and a custom hose protector. While in that area, decided to check motor mount nuts, and found that all 4 nuts on right side were really loose. Hand - turn with a socket grip loose. Anybody else found loose motor mounts,? Looking for a torque spec on how tight they should be.... double checked all hose clamps and also dabbed a Lil lock tite on the clamp screws. Maybe it's ready for a Lil more abuse...we will see.
