Is this a good spark plug for a dirt bike?


I don't know what kind of bike you have, but NGK is used on most import bikes. Hope this answers your question. Good luck.

NO SPARK AT SPARL PLUG


What is the year make and model? When you tested the spark plug did you put the metal screw side of the plug up against an unpainted section of the bike such as the engine while the other part was still connected? If you didnt do that you wont get a spark even if the spark plug is good. Did you try to swap out spark plug to see if it was the spark plug just going bad? With out what kind of bike it is I dont know if it uses a magneto or not.

Have a c50, i turn key to on position and flip power switch on. fuel system begins to power up and then stops mid way through the cycle. starter will work but bike will not start.


U check the bike sparks plugs distributors caps and those sparks plugs itself for of the bike for dirtyness and dirts by tries cleanning it with some DW40 chemicals spray for better contact for fuel ignition burn?Yes,than check all of the sparks sets firering gaps in the bike are dull and colors of those sparks plugs are blues or old blues colors in the firering gaps.The sparks plugs set in ur bike are 3 or 4 years old?Yes?Change the bike for another set of spark plugs.

I get down the road and my zuma just stops running all at once! I have bought a new spark plug and checked for a spark and there is one so i dont think it is the coil, can you help me?


some kind of short id guess. Or lose or corded connection. Good luck..but I wouldn't run any more until you know for sure what's happening. NOT TO SCARE YOU BUT IF ITS A HOT SHORT YOUR BIKE COULD CATCH FIRE..OR GIVE YOU A SHOCK THRU THE HANDLE BARS AND SWITCHES..DEPENDING WHAT KIND OF SHORT YOUR DEALING WITH....SO BEWARE..AROUND A SHORT THE WIRE WILL LOOK LIKE BABY POWDER KINDA.YOULL KNOW WHEN YOU SEE IT USUAULY NEAR A METAL OBJECT..LIKE THE FRAME OF THE BIKE..THAN TRAVELS TO THE CLOSEST GROUND..THE RIDER.NOTHING TO PLAY WITH VERY SERIOUS..WHEN WORKING ON ANY MOTOR ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POSTIVE BATTERY CABLE AND WRAP IT IN PLASTIC SO IT CANT MAKE A CONNENCTION UNTIL YOUR READY,,OH YEA ONE WAY YOU CAN TELL IF YOU HAVE A SHORT IS WHEN CONNECTING THE POSTIVE,IT WILL SPARK AS IT TOUCHES THE BATTERY THATS A SHORT..MAKE SURE NO LIGHTS OR ANY THING IS TURNING ON WHEN CONNECTNING..THE BIGGER THE SPARK THE WORSE THE SHORT..CAN EVEN WELD ITS SELF TOGETHER..

How to change the spark plug


i'm not sure what kind of bike your working on but here we go, older sports bikes and in line motors:the best thing to do here is remove the body (if it has one) sometimes you can get the socket in without removing the gas tank. best if you do tho it WILL make it easier.New sport bikes: start with the seat remove it then the tank now the airbox, after you have all this apart you should be able to get into the spark plug caps. Be careful here because most of the new bikes use a cap the also acts like the coil, it will have a plug with two wires remove that from the cap and remove the cap from the motor. take your time do one at a time and put it back together they the you took it apart. v twin bikes like harlys and bikes that look like then will have the spark plugs on the side of the motor sometimes under covers that may pull off or have screws. World of powersports is a site that shows micro phish. this is a part break down that you can use to find part numbers and where things are at in the bike.
Good luck my friend
