    '91 K75 Howls when hot!

    My bike has 14,000 miles and I changed the spark plugs after having a sort-of
    break down. At 25 miles into the ride, at 75 mph, the engine bogged like I was out

    Smoothe Test

    I tried Paul's vibration test with a cup of water on the tank of my K75 and it didn't
    work. The cup blew off each time I went through the gears.

    wet switch

    Thanks, I just read the article and it sounds rather difficult to access. I was hoping for an easy cure. Maybe I could just unplug the indicator and neutral light
