    Burning Up Spark Plugs

    I own 2 skis, 96 GTX and 95 GTX. They are both 2 strokes and i understand that 2 stroke burn up spark plugs allot. My question is what can cause them to burn up so quickly? Is it a mixture problem, or is it something that i will have to deal with. The 95 GTX has a new engine and i have had no problems, but the 96 has the original engine and this is the one that is having the problem. Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to GH jm!

    First off, two strokes don't burn up spark plugs, they foul them if the fuel mixture is too rich, or some ignition problem exists.

    I've run the same set of plugs over two years, running premix.

    Easiest things first, are you running NGK BR8ES?

    sure 2 strokes will eat plugs,,, but as posted it is usually a jetting or LONG idle preiod that fouls them.

    i had this problem on my 95 xp and come to find out that the cable that injects oil which is regulated by how far the gas is open was stretched. So it was to rich that way adjusted it and its perfect now. So check that out its easy to check.

    was not a hamster. It was a gerbil.

    On a serious note, it was running a little rich, so a short tuning session fixed the problem.
