    New plugs and breathing equipment arrived today, BMC filter was last one in AUS allegedly, thought Id go something other than K&N sure I read a post about BMC from another fine chap on the forum.

    Just waiting on a new BOSCH coil and lead set.

    My foray into the crank breather project has stalled as the reed valve I found in the states is out of stock for a couple of weeks. Plan is to use something similar to Mr JWilson with oil/moisture capture, + crank negative pressurization (although as per others this was only a thing on older engines) and fed back to the air box, also sourcing some stainless braided tubing.

    Richard-7 recommended the Iridium plugs, even mentions in the blurb about assisting idling, also went on about flame creation with its precious metal tip. !! fascinating :rolleyes:

    There is no OEM replacement option from K&N . BMC is the only option I am aware of. It's a very well made filter . I am not a guru .

    A lot of owners don’t realise that the factory fitted a charging lead, so they fit another one.

    Or, some folk fit Shoria batteries that use a different type of charger and hence require a different charging lead.

    Ok Cool, both my Ducati and this Nort have been fitted with the same connector,(I re routed the cable to the back opposite site of the original) perhaps an AU market thing, ill check out the wiring and if I can get a connector to fit the Nort factory one Ill remove the other.

    Thanks for the info.

    Mine came new with the SAE and the one tucked in the frame. Guessing my dealership didn't know it was there either.

    Anyone done an oil change and can advise if the OEM sump plug is magnetic please ?? I'm guessing it is but replacement is $56usd so just asking before I waste money
