    kfl+ positive post rotates?

    Has anyone has their positive post of the KFL rotate to the point that its touching the negative?
    Mine did it while I was out last night and caused a short, was uncomfortable to say the least :P

    I have done a google but cant seem to find a better fix that simply moving it back into place.

    The centre pin holds that bit in place. So if you hold it where it is meant to sit then tighten up the centre pin it should stay there.

    Haven't even had a drink and thought the title said "Positive roast potatoes"

    I'd be sucking the juice out of it & doing it now. Shorting the connection like that is really bad for your battery.
    You can do it with the coil attached
    What I have found useful when tightening it up, is to put a small flat blade screwdriver into the gap between neg & pos blocks, on the side that the pos block naturally wants to spin towards when being tightened.
    This helps to keep it from twisting onto the neg block, when you tighten it all up but it can be a little tricky to do.

    Done, used pliers to hold it in place and tighten up, still a bit concerned to put it back on the mech atm.. will run it on the provari for a while to be sure.
    thanks for your help

    If it's tightened up properly, it won't budge. When you need to replace the coil, check that it is still tightened up properly & use a pair of pliers (gently) on the pos block to see if you can cause it to shift at all.
    If you can't, then it's all good.
