Spark plug affect performance?

Hey all! =)

What is the recommended spark plug for a 43mm cylinder 63cc, 13/13 carb, polini top one and some other minor stuff?

I currently have a "B8HS" spark plug which was greased to death after a twostroke-oil-miscalculation... (6% oil mixture - hope nothing else got broken)

Re: Spark plug affect performance?

I usualy use b7hs on just about everything. I tried a bu8hs but it kept fouling so i got off that ride.

Re: Spark plug affect performance?

Thx - good straight reply! Ill get one of those then.

I would recommend properly mixing your oil first to see if the b8 is correct for your kit. Some kits like colder plugs, some like hotter. I run a b9 on one engine and a b11 on another. There is no 'one plug for every setup'.

Bu8h on points. Buz8h cdi

it really is determined by conditions, for example my uber rich jetted kitted tomos w a puney 15mm overbored sha 74 jet will rip with a 4L

on normal days 65f-75f, when its like 90f it will rip with 6L, when its 32f and below it loves a super cold klg 220 which on the ngk scale is a 10.

i recently rejetted to a 70, and the 4l is an awesome cocoa tan, read the plug it knows, before it was dark chocolate w/ a 74 and would stumble at WOT and cut at idle, being too rich with a 8hs.

almost any weather condition can change which plug runs best, humidity and quality of the gas, oil ratio, timing, altitude and how well your kit sheds heat.

i tried the recomended buz8h and it ran ok but fowled too easy. i have an advantage, cause the harley shops kid ran 2t race bikes in the 70's and has a stockpile of discontinued 2t plugs, hence the ubercool klg's.

Ah, so maybe buy 2-3 different ones and feel which one is best would be easiest (~$7 each).

Side note:

Very nice plug-reading-chart mate! Very good for jetting! That should be in the mopedarmy-wiki to jetting!!?

Too bad my vespa bravo is a dick beeing rejetted, have to dismount the entire swing/shocks to access carb/jet =/ On Ciao the carb cup is directly accessed from beneath.
