Motorcycle Spark Plugs

Spark plugs!... Without them, you’re bike ain’t goin’ anywhere!

The internal combustion engine is possibly one of the greatest inventions of mankind. However, without the inexpensive ‘Spark Plug’, your beautifully crafted 200mph superbike engine is just another lump of metal… In order for the engine to start, the fuel and air mix in the combustion chamber needs to be ignited - this is the job of the spark plug!

Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that. For instance, if your bike’s plugs are old, not gapped correctly or even worse they are the wrong heat rating for your engine –  at best your bike will run roughly. In the worst cases, the spark plug can cause ‘pre-ignition’. This symptom dramatically raises the engine cylinder temperature and pressure, which in turn can cause serious and expensive engine damage such as melt and hole pistons, burn valves, etc.

The good news is that these often-misunderstood components of the internal combustion engine are quick, easy and relatively inexpensive to replace. For optimum engine performance, it’s recommended to change the plugs every engine service.
