Plug question

Recommended Posts

I pulled my plug out of my bike last night after it cooled down so I didn't wreck my head, anyways when I got it out I noticed that the tip was dry is that bad?

Like the tip of the plug was dry, I don't know much about 4 strokes I'm used to two stroke a little wetness on a two stroke is good. I just don't know if four stroke plugs being dry is bad? Like being lean.

Ok I was just checking. I mean you can't take the plug out hot because then you run the risk of screwing up your head because its aluminum and when the plug is unscrewing it will pull the threads out of the head. Just fyi

No, removing a plug on a hot engine will NOT pull the threads out. Only over torquing will do that. The sort of BS old wives tales are really quite the joke. Who ever told you that is clueless.

A plug will always be dry on a 4S unles it is fuel fouled. A plug should be dry on a 2S too if it is jetted right and ridden as it was designed to be ridden.
