Tool of the month

BIKE (UK) - - Know How -

Mod­ern bikes only need spark plug checks once in a blue moon, and most bikes are changed be­fore their plugs, so a spark plug gap tool won’t see much ac­tion. But, when you need one they’re nice to have and they only cost a few quid. On this ver­sion each of the six loops of wire is a dif­fer­ent thick­ness, from .64mm to 1.14mm, and the strange slot­ted bits al­low you to tweak the ground elec­trode to set the gap to the bike man­u­fac­tur­ers rec­om­men­da­tion. Lovely.
