New spark plug

The other day I wanted to start the bike, but nothing happened. There was fuel, compression was good, but I wasn’t even close to get it started. I checked the spark, and it did seem a bit weak. Removed the spark plug cap, and this is what I saw.

It shouldn’t look like this, and for sure didn’t when I put the cap on to begin with. I therefore trimmed the end, and sourced a new cap and new spark plugs as well (courtesy by Erik Ludvigsen, contact details on the FAQ page), to see if this would resolve the issue at hand.
Luckily it did.
