PostSubject: Noise suppressor Plug change   Wed 05 Mar 2014, 03:30

Hey guys,

I have an SWT which is basicaly the same engine as the Silverwing 400.

I have my ''noise supressor'' 30700-KY2-701 that is defective and I got a new one.

How do I remove the wire going into the plug ?



Thanks

Unscrew the cap from the wire. Don't twist the wire --it will/may break internally.

Well I have applied a mouvement of unscrewing and pulling at the same time

The swapping of the new part was the same

The engine is starting

waiting for the first rain to see if some humidity is stopping me from starting the engine...

I have seen a couple of incidents here where rain & humidity have effected the coil as well as the plug wires, causing the scoot to either not start, or to cut out while at speed. Microscopic cracks in the coil body causing moisture to effect the coil function.

So the message here is that, if your noise supressor/plug cap fix doesn't solve the problem, then bit the bullet and replace the coil AND plug wires.

One Honda shop replaced the coil and then used similar plug wires from another model. And while the fix worked initially it soon failed again because those (incorrect) plug wires were causing too much resistance, or impedience, or something like that. When the plug wires were replaced with Silverwing-specific wires all was, and remains, well. HTH

Hey

I have experienced some issue with the system refusing to start during winter pourring rains.

I found out that each time my cap was a bit ''not in position''

It was actually a bit damager (one rubber part was worn)

I hope that replacing it will remove this issue
