    For the Ficht fuel injected Genesis i & Virage TXi engines, the spark plug is NGK brand PZFR6H.
    There are no substitutes or alternative brand plugs, as far as I know.


    I found SparkPlugs.com to have good pricing for these hard-to-find spark plugs. They come in boxes of four, I bought three boxes ==> enough for four sets of three.

    If they won't ship to you directly, there are a number of Green Hulk folks who might be willing to forward them to you.

    For the carbureted Genesis models, I think the correct spark plug is the NGK BPR9ES.

    Apparently, there is also an Iridium tipped version, BR9EIX



    Other carb'ed Polaris engines use the NGK BPR8ES, so check the manual to be sure.

    I'm not sure what the long term effects are, but Polaris must have had good reason to change from their standard NGK spark plug in the carb'ed engines to the platinum tipped PZFR6H for the fuel injected engines.

    Which engine type do you have - fuel injected or carbureted?

    On any engine, using a 'too cold' spark plug leads to plug fouling, as the tip doesn't get hot enough to burn off contaminants (oil, etc).

    Using a 'too hot' heat range spark plug can cause pre-ignition, which causes piston and cylinder damage.

    For NGK, the lower the middle digit, the HOTTER the heat range for that spark plug. So the BPR8ES would be one heat range hotter than the recommended BPR9ES in a carbureted Genesis engine.

    When you are just trying to get the engine running, short term I think you can use the BPR9ES spark plug. It won't limit RPM, and new spark plugs are important to ensure that the old plugs were not causing some of the trouble. I would not ride with those plugs for long time.

    Clarification needed on correct spark plug for a 2001 Carbed genesis

    My apologies for bringing up an old thread, but it is exactly what I am trying to figure out.
    My service manual calls for a BR9ES on my 2001 genesis not a BPR9ES as stated below. Can I get some clarification on the right plugs. Also will these be the same in my 2001 carbed TX? Thanks.

    Hello! I am new to this thread. But I couldn't help notice that there were 2 different spark plugs mentioned for the Virage Txi. The PZFR6H in this thread. But I had read in another thread that it should take the PZFR6G. Is there a difference?? Wanna make sure I get the correct plugs for this Ski.

    Thanks!!
