    FZR Bogging Down

    I got everything together on my ski for the first time this year and it was bogging down. I am not sure why. So I replaced the plugs (picture attached) and I threw 10 gallons of 100 octane in the tank. Hopefully that does the trick. Would you classify these plugs as bad?

    when is the last time they where changed?
    what do you mean by bogging down?

    Plug are shot. Your running big injectors and after market ecu? something not right with your tune mind you higher octane fuel will burn out plugs quicker.

    New plugs and gas did the trick.

    What kind of plugs did you use and would they work for all FZRs?

    They are the stock plugs. I got them from my local Yamaha dealer. They were $11.10 each.

    I realize they were NGK, but my question was more of the "model" like Iridium.
