Over the weekend I fouled my plug and tried to change it out with a plug that had been cleaned. My bike still would not start. Finally I drove to a local dealer and picked up a new plug. Started right up. Does anybody know if the CR8E is not meant to be reused once it is cleaned? This looks like the case to me but I was curios if anyone else had this problem.

I have used the old oven cleaner trick on all of my fouled plugs. Some work again and some dont. So i just always use new and toss the old. My .400 cents worth :)
