    Angry spark plugs dead in 4 hours

    ive made my maintenece at the dealer and he put new spark plugs"DENSO" now with only four hours they are dead.
    the dealer told me is because of riding for too long whitout accelarating!!!???
    does anyone had this problem??
    i think is a litlle supited issue but thats why im asking...
    i have the timming mode by 6º degrees can it by because of that?
    i only ride in sea.

    thanks

    I was told if you let it idle for long period of time was bad for the plugs.

    I've got the timing mod, and no plug issues so far. Throw them Denso's in the trash, and get the NGK's.

    Yes the CR9EK's should work. They are cheap and up to the task, I just changed a set out at 60 hours . . . "wanted to" not "had to". jb
