I might have two but not home until Thursday so can’t look at the min Dom. Have you a diagnosis or just noticed something else that needs fettling?

I think Nurse Julie may sell these as well.
At least being new they are flat, old ones tend to be buckled and when you try and straighten them they have a habit of splitting!

Cheers Roo!  just one is a bit mangled and the other snapped through mate, it makes tightening up the nuts a bit tricky on that pair of carbs.  I haven't looked at it since I came across the dodgy plugs, I googled it and they appear legit but fakes may be pretty good maybe?

I think it’s something to do with the writing around the plug just under the nut bit.  Whether it’s there or not or summing.

If you can hang on I’ll find em and ship em up to you bud.

Not that expensive when you consider Honda only sell them with the adjuster assembly and if available cost 100's

I think if it’s there and nice and tidy it’s legit, if not is an immo job. Like I say, summing like that

Not sure how accurate it is but a good benchmark test when buying I guess.

It’s certainly an interesting one mate!

I really can't believe I'm having such bad luck, four new plugs arrived so I thought let's test them before fitting.  One has no continuity right out of the box! 

*well it still sparks even though my multimeter showed there to be no continuity from the electrode to the cap end?
