Spark Plug "recovery"
Had a plug foul today. I was out on the water. I did the following, and didn't have to change the plugs out. If it works for you, maybe it will save your day of riding.
I was riding around 15mins, when the power dropped off, and the ski was running on 3 cylinders. I did the following.
I went to idle. I feathered the throttle around idle. You could hear it not firing on the one plug. I idled some more. It smoothed out, then got nasty again. I did the fethering a few more times. Then I got higher and higher on rpms. I went about 3/4 throttle, feathering the throttle. I took it to shore, and let it sit for about 15 mins.
I ran the rest of the day with no more issues. It ran great. No idea if what I did help, but hey, if it makes your day at the lake better, then run with it.
I never took the seat off.

I cleaned my failed stock plugs with a brass brush and some carb cleaner, blew them off w/ the compressor and they have been fine for 4 hours. So failed stockers can be cleaned up and re-used..
