    Plugs!

    I know this is a polaris forum but the people in the kawasaki forum never answer and arent nearly as helpful as you all I just purchased a 96 kawasaki 650TS and noticed that it had B10ES plugs. The ski was running well, but i wanted to put in fresh plugs. I looked and found out that this ski calls for BR7ES plugs. When i put them in the ski it ran like crap! Sluggish and just wouldnt rev up. I put the old plugs back in and off it went. Any ideas why? Should i just stick with the B10ES? Is there any problems running a non resistor plug? Thanks for helping.

    I agree! other forums suck! But the 7's are super hot and the 10's are cool so the resistor probably isn't the issue as much as the factory gap? IMHO Z

    The resistor is to keep from having interference with you ignition system, it's not usually a problem just cheap insurance. Maybe the ski was modified or something. It could explain the different plugs. Don't really know.

    Did you set the gap on the 7's the same as those on the 10?
    I'll bet the gap is closed to something like .024 vs .028, give that a try maybe??
    I also don't think I'd go much hotter than the 8's
