    We say just stick with NGK. Low cost, best, least prone to foul. You really might want to try NGK BP6HS. "P" is extended electrode.



    Scroll for NGK plugs

    Per our web page:

    Also in the "5" heat range.

    It's a LOT better in the fouling department, and you just might feel a little power. Tiny difference but with a single cylinder so dependent on the plug, using the best plug is something we see as important.

    Didn't we have a post about some one using a different plug and it stuck down into the chamber a little too far with the result of the piston head hitting it?
    I know my memory doesn't work very well at times but I'm pretty sure I read something like that somewhere.

    It could happen is someone used the wrong plug.
