Default Re: Plug color

If you try to remove the spark plug when the cylinder head and plug are hot you might very well be ordering a new cylinder head. The aluminum used to cast the head is soft so therefore so are the threads where the plug goes. The steel plug will be hot and expanded in the head. Do not remove a plug from a Chinese 2 stroke engine when it is hot.

Allow the engine to cool a little, ten minutes or so, before attempting to remove the spark plug. These aren't Harleys or Hondas. Treat them a little softer.
