So I am going riding tomorrow, and of course the one time I think my plug fouls is tonight. Does Kragen auto parts have these plugs? IS there any way to install in less than 5 minutes? 02 yz426

Are you sure the plug is fouled? Four strokes normally don't foul plugs....No way that I know of to replace the plug in five min....You have to remove the gas tank to get at it. It's about a 20 min. job if all goes well.

i have a 01 426 and changing the plug sucks. the bikes are so picky and you should drop down to whatever letters i gorget and one number below stock. they start easier and they run a hell of a lot better man. try it out. they suck to do though
