    Spark plug size.

    I have a 1997 xlt 600 limited. I think I have the wrong spark plug size. I am using br9es but I fouled different plug each time I ride. Only reason I am using that size is bc that's what was in it. Carbs are all the same I know it's not the carb setting. I found on ngk web site that br8es is what I should be using. My temp rang is from -10*f to 35*f and elevation doesn't change much. Sled is all stock and just wanted to check with u guys if I am suppose to use br8es before I spend about $10 on plugs. Thanks 99600xc

    I would actually go with br8eya if you can find them. Exact same specs as the br8es but it has a v-grooved tip which resists fouling in 2-strokes better.

    Around here the br8eya's are actually about $0.50 cheaper. Cheaper for a better plug is fine by me. If you can find them that is.
