Spark plug

Post by Wingfixer » Tue Jun 06, 2017 4:14 pm

I pulled this out of the Beta. It has 90 hours on it, thoughts? Comments?

I pulled it to replace to see if that would cure a little roughness in the engine when I hold steady throttle.

The photos are not the best res on my phone. Is that water droplets or metal particles on the tip?

Are you asking because you're worried about damage or jetting?

I think he's asking if he can keep it and reuse it :lol2:

Comments..... change it :shrug:




I think that might be a lot of hours on a 2 stroke plug, I've seen worse on a lot less hours. What is Beta's recommended service interval on the plug?

Well that seems too simple. Change it. The roughness at steady throttle could be a number of things but they all cost more than a spark plug.

Ding ding! We have a winner!
No, really this is my first 2 stroke, I was just looking for input. Also, I'm sitting in a union meeting and am bored shitless.

90 hours on a 2 stroke plug is a good long while.
