    Change plugs every season

    Curious do many put in new plugs at the start of each season?
    Thanks!

    I do. Service manunal recommends plugs every 50 hours, or 12 months.

    I'm pretty strict about what I do with stuff like this so I stick to the manual. I'll check them in between too just to see if they're looking good..

    I change mine at least once a year. This year, I changed them twice.

    I change mine often. Depending on how hard I ride and the distances, I change them usually every 5-10 hrs along with the oil. Preventative maintenance is key.

    Fukn A!! My plugs usually look done around every 20ish hrs max. Oil and plugs are cheap and happen to be the best and easiest things you can change for any engine, especially engines with turbos and superchargers!!!! Fuk all that 50-100hrs and annual BS...piss on the manual. Change those items often if you're gonna be spanking a charged engine at 8100+ RPMs. Those items need to be in check on high powered engines! Much more than 20-30ish hrs and my ski starts feeling a little "soft" on power.

    Damn.....Keep those cylinders happy!!!!!

    I don't put a ton of hours on my ski per year but here's what I do: I fog (intake while running then cylinders) in the fall and then start it up in the spring with the old plugs and let her run for a bit on the hose. Then I put new plugs in before putting her in the water.
