Stupid spark plug wire Q

So the boot separated from the wire. The wires inside are a little beat up. Do I just push back together? After I clean up the end or replace.

Snip off about 1/4" and then thread the cap back on clockwise until tight. (not heman tight, just tight)

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Ah sweet thanks. One more question if you don't mind. How do I Prime the motor for oil once I button it back up? Pull wires and turn over?

Unless you took the motor apart and dried it all out..... you shouldn't need to prime it. The plain bearings will have enough of a film of oil to carry on until the pump delivers fresh. Obviously, don't rev the motor until your low oil pressure light goes out....

^ but if you really feel the need to prime it.......... You can simply crank it over in a no start condition
some bikes will crank will the kill button on kill
some will not crank then and you need to cut fuel or spark (I'd rather cut fuel so nothing is going in the combustion chamber and washing down the walls and ending up in the crankcase.....but it will evaporate away given enough run time and heat)
