 Used to be a box at bottom of thread to do that or you can ask admin,sticky or Indy. It's still there in one of my threads,either lock or remove. If you remove it all the info will be lost.

That's a first. All 3 plugs going bad at the exact same time?  :084: I think something else is wrong and whatever it was (poor electrical connection??) got fixed while you were moving things around.

I know it's strange. I've had the plugs in and out maybe 20 times . Maybe they died after the beating they had at the TT this year

all 3 at exactly the same time? I use my bike plugs for 40k miles, got 150k miles on the plugs in 2 of my cars, and my lawn mower has had the same plug in it for 16 yrs. Never even one failure on any of them. Champion, ngk, bosch, nd. Different brands, never a failure on any.

Or your fuel is contaminated with diesel or oil. Were the plugs clean or fouled? If it happens again tomorrow try giving the plugs a clean ad draining your fuel.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Stranger things happen at sea.
That's all I can put it down to is the plugs. As soon as I fitted them she started. I've had the loom out of the bike fully checked the wires for continuity and resistance . Checked the feeds from the ecu to the coils on start up. Had everything plugged and unplugged countless times. I'm as puzzled as you guys it's a first in my book to that they all went the same time. I've checked the timing and the charging rate just to cover all bases

Plugs seemed ok if I'm honest. Just no or little spark when removed and earthed out.
Fuel was good also. I put fresh in after a run and the light was on
