    Spark Plug Removal 250 X

    Have ultra 250 X with 54 hrs. on it and it started to bogg down at high speed only. No popping or misfiring just acted like it was loading up. Asuming I need to change first set of plugs and I used Kawasaki plug wrench that came with ski and I broke loose first 2 plugs but it seemed to be a chore to unscrew the plugs all the way out. after 1 full turn I crewed them back up tight and am waiting for some help before I possibly screw something up. Help please. Also which plugs shoud I buy to replace the ones that came stock. It seems they have 3 types to put in The PMR9B are $23 a piece. Thanks

    You may need to take it to the dealer, if the plug got corroded then it will mess the threads up all the way out.

    The plug socket that comes with the ski is a joke. Better use a good socket meant for plugs. When you put them back in dab alittle anti-sieze on the threads.

    any hardware store or home supply store should have it..... 5/8 inch plug socket on a 3/8 drive ratchet with a 6 inch extension will work just fine


    i use the denso plugs in mine and @ 10 bucks a piece cheaper than the ones from the dealer @ 23 a piece

    Also make sure the engine is cold or you will have a hard time getting them out.
