My bike is a 2000 426, I have always run plugs for at least 25 hrs before changing them. Now all of a sudden they are fouling about every 4 hours. Whats going on? I have made no changes to the carb. Weather a little colder, maybe?

I was having the same thing happen to me until I cleaned the carb thoroughly. I had some gas go bad and gel up in the carb. Second, I added a J.D. jetting kit and haven't had a fouled plug since.

dirty fuel or just old fuel, try to leave the bike tank empty between rides, full with fresh premium and clean air filter, also ensure air filter not over oiled.if youve got a large can of fuel donate to lawn mower:cry: i had this exact issue but all fixed now thats all it was:ride:
