400 spark plug question

4 posts in this topic

I have fouled many plugs (cr9e) in my bike over the past few months. Would running a hotter spark plug (cr8e) get rid of the fouling? My last resort is to change the jetting. Thanks for any info.

I had this same problem in my bike.

I ride alot of trails, so i figured since im not really ever getting into the top end much, the engine never really gets a chance to burn nice and hot to keep the plug from fouling.

so i leaned out the needle jet by moving the lil circlip up one position.

this seemed to have fixed the problem, because i have yet to foul a plug, and when i pull it out to check it, its always nice and tan looking :banana:

so basicly,

plug fouling= over-rich condition.
