    Factory Recommendations!!

    I purchased a new 07 ski about 3 weeks ago which we all know is oil injected but i was told for the first tank of gas to still mix 50:1 for break in purposes.. Now i wasn't thrilled so i checked in the owners manual and it said the same thing so what the hell,i did it!!! I now have 10 hrs on the ski and checked the plugs today to find out that they are almost black.. The ski haas been running good but i am glad i checked because it needed new plugs.. After a few hours i plan to check again just to make sure nothing else caused the fouling!!!

    Thanks guys, i ended up getting BR9ES plugs and i am J-gapping and indexing them today.. I know stock it had BR8ES11 plugs but it was after hours last night so i could only find the 9s.. I will try these for now...Chip and you guys here on the site are a big help for new comers to the two stroke world... My background consist of V8 stroker motors and street bikes... Thanks

    The 9's should work but they're a little cold for a motor with stock compression and timing.
