Spark Plugs

Use the recommended plugs; don't go to a hotter plug!

(it'll run great for a little while, until the pistons explode!)

Never use Champion Spark plugs as they are to hot.
Always use NGK B7HS.
I bet this starts a argument :D

Not with me it won't. I agree completely.
The above is my opinion. It is subject (like all my opinions) to debate, disagreement, rude gestures, and loud raspberries.

Welcome to the forums Ring a Ding! No argument here neither, I Will never use Champions again in my life.

I rebuilt a engine for a 1959 Cadillac and when it was done we put in the car but it wouldn't start, I kept thinking I had the distributor out 180 degrees so I kept swapping it out 180, so after hours of trying my dad said "you know I had problems with champion plugs before, lets get a set of AC's" (which should have been in a GM car in the first place)
It started right up with the AC's!
I'd rather be driving my LJ!

I also agree. Champion plugs do not do ATV's any good either.

Of course I am a NGK dealer so I am kinda partial to them.

Welcome ring a ding!!!

Sorry to disappoint you, but I can't argue that point either! Nothin' but NGK's in my LJ's!

I picked up some NOS recently that had some NGK plugs with the SGP (Suzuki Genuine Parts) logo and Suzuki part # printed on the package. Definitely have to keep the packaging on those!

That's why they made the Lj's so small and light... So you can push them until you get a set of NGK's! :hammer:

Sensitivity for heatranges is more a 2-stroke thing.
I hate rust...

The older I get the better I was...
