    The Bonneville is a 2009 model EFI.



    Does the seat and petrol tank need to be taken off when replacing spark plugs please?

    Just to add to the other answers, I first loosen the plug about 1 or 2 turns. Then I blow a shot of compressed air around the base of the plug. If you don't have an air compressor, use a can of compressed air that is used for cleaning computers (Radio Shack, etc). The reason why is that dirt and crud tends to collect in the recess that the plug fits into. This will blow it out, so it won't fall into the cylinder through the spark plug hole when the plug is removed.

No need to remove tank. I use an 18mm (i think) deep socket to loosen plug and slide a 8 inch piece of tygon tubing over the plug to screw it out. Insert new plug into the clear tubing to engage (start) the threads of new plug. Most hardware/home supply stores sell the clear soft plastic tubing very cheap. Take a new plug with you to get tubing that will fit snugly on the spark plug insulator. Tightend to specified torque setting and ride. Do not overtighten, as the aluminum head will strip easily.

you would use Fuel Injector Cleaner in the fuel since it is EFI (Electronic Fuel Injected). Check the Fuel filter while you are at it should be inline between the tank and the Injectors. If the filter hasnt been changed for a while it will cause this type of problem and eventually will cause damage to other components.

I have a 2006 T100 Bonneville and one exhaust is getting far hotter than the other - any suggestions please?


The hot pipe is running a lean fuel / air mix. Chances are outside air is getting into the intake manifold by getting past the mounting clamps between the carb and the cylinder. A cracked rubber manifold, burned exhaust valve, loose spark plug or bad head gasket are other possibilitys. Is there any chance a previous owner has a smaller main jet in one carb than the other? Are the spark plugs both the same? Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Kinda vague description of the problem, but I'll take a shot at it. Bad connection, dead ignition module or coil, computer problems.

I have error codes on 2006 HD street bob. Bike will not start.


The codes are the following depending on your bike (EFI or Carb).:

P0373 CKP Sensor Intermittent Carb
P0373 CKP Sensor Intermittent EFI
P0374 CKP Sensor Not Detected Carb
P0374 CKP Sensor Synch Error EFI
U1255 Missing Message at Speedometer EFI
U1255 Serial Data Error/Missing Message EFI
U1255 Serial Data Error/Missing Message Instruments
U1255 Serial Data Error/Missing Message TSM/TSSM
this could be a number of potential things or maybe just a loose connection or ground somewhere. you are probably best to go to a shop, sorry.
