Ok, I thought the wether was going to totally suck today, but it cleared up
nicely on my way home, and I got a chance to get on the bike for a much needed
After riding around for a while to get warmed up, I ran it wide open for a mile
(that was fun in itself). I stopped and took out the plug. It probably took me all of
thirty seconds to shut off the bike, get off, put down the stand, and get the plug
I was pleasantly suprised to see no oil or junk on the plug at all, maybe just a
slight oil film on the thread area. The color was black, just like the plug was
fresh out of the box.(not dirty). There was no color glow of any kind. In fact I could
hold my finger on the tip for about 10-15 seconds before I could feel it heating my
finger tip. It was about 60 degrees, so my fingers weren't cold.
What does that tell you ???
