The BBR engine I bought had so much paint around the plug hole that it flaked off and fouled the plug.
Black or silver? I went with a silver one the second time after reading a thread about paint chips getting into the cylinder. I took my engine apart when I first got it and found metal specks on top of the piston
First two: Rich and way too much oil, probably due to break in, makes sense.
2nd: Not enough miles / time on it to be able to tell much of anything.
Even 24:1 was too much on the break in? I'm now doing 32:1 so I wonder what it will look like now
FIrst two pictures you are def rich that plug shows more oil on it then a pimple face teenager
now the 3rd pic if thats a new plug clean it, then put it in the bike, and let the bike run idle for a bit and then ride around quarter throttle take a pic for later this will tell you if you need to move clip up or down
then clean it again this time drive around 1/2 to FULL throttle for a bit this time the plug should show a new sign if its rich then you need to jet
if you don't know weather your lean or rich at each just send pic
expand...So, I actually moved it to the third position if 1 was the flat end of the needle and 4 was the pointy end. I'm an idiot. I was convinced that lean was running with too much oil and rich was too much gas and I was wrong wrong wrong.
I'm going to move it back down to #2 and do what you said when I wake up tomorrow.
Best way to clean a spark plug or should I leave it as is? The cleaner plug was used for a quarter mile when I was running honestly 12-10:1. I was using an 8oz container of oil and was pouring based on the transparent markings on the side. Rookie mistake, been using a measuring cup ever since.
