Sandpaper

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had luck with using sandpaper for a fouled plug vs packing a new plug for trail repairs? I carry a new plug but I am curious for others on the trail.

'Sandpaper' will not unfoul a plug. The ceramic is fuel/oil soaked and needs to be cleaned. Fresh plug, correct jetting. Sometimes, a fouled plug can be put in a properly running hoit bike and ridden, the running process cleaning the plug.

Sandpaper will "unfoul" a carbon-fouled plug, but not a typical wet-fouled plug. It will also scratch up the electrode and round off the sharp corners which may make the plug foul even quicker next time.

Fix your jetting and this won't be an issue.
