Spark Plug Cap

Think I need to replace a cap on my 79 Z1000 A2 so will do all 4 I think - If I replace like for like with NGK caps, which ones do I need and are the inner/outer ones the same ? Also are there any tips on fitting ie do you simply unscrew the old and screw on the new ones ? Thanks all. :roll:

Indicators

Noticed that when the headlight on my Z1000 is on the indicators flash more slowly - Checked battery on multi-meter when removed from bike and shows over 12v to fully charged - Should I check battery with engine running - Any thoughts ? Cheers all. :roll:

Mind the gap

Need to get my z1000 down an access way that is a couple of inches narrower than the max bars width - Can I just loosen handlebars and move slightly to reduce width ? :hah!
