Default Re: Spark plug gap...Myth? Fact?

in my old honda autocross car, i always gapped my plugs pretty small, figuring it would be a faster spark at high rpms. seemed like it was a little harder to start, but as long as it started, i didn't care.

these engines i just don't know. maybe one week i'll change it everyday. gap it so it'll barely start, then widen it till it won't run anymore.

but that seems like a lot of work for a little performance, so i'll probably just keep that in the back of my "things to do to make my bike better that i'm probably not gonna do but maybe i should..." list.
