Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner left out too long.
2. Incorrect spark plugs for your kind of service.
3. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
4. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off valve guide and pump oil through it.
5. Spark plug cable weak or ignition coil faulty.

Are you losing gear oil.
When the crankshaft seal leaks, oil from the gearbox is sucked into the crankcase, and this can foul the plug.
Also check the plug gap, most guys set the gap too small. It should be 0,7mmto 0,8mm. The plug should be a B9 EG, or equivilant.
Now, you can also change the plug cap to a type that has a built in resistor, this also helps with plug life.
Note that 2 strokes use plugs way more than 4 strokes, and you should replace the plug every 15-20 hours to keep your riding pleasant.
Good Bike you have there

SOURCE: Fouling plugs
Get a new NGK spark plug one heat range hotter than stock. Be sure the fuel mix is 32/1 using two stroke engine oil ( not motor oil ). A 32/1 mixture equals 4 ounces oil to 1 gallon of gas. Remove the cylinder head and de-carbon the top of the piston and head.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: what spark plug for yz 125?
I have a dennis kirk book, the correct spark plug is a --BR9ES--(NGK)
i always used SAE 10w-30 oil on all my dirtbikes,
no transmission fluid
for the chain you should move the back tire back until the chain is at a snug tension

There are only two adjustments to make on your carburetor; the idle speed, and the idle mixture adjustment. If the spark plug fouls frequently, first make sure you are using the correct spark plug. Your 1997 YZ125 uses an NGKB9EGV. Then be sure you are using the recommended two stroke oil, mixed to the proper ratio, in the fuel. Also make sure the air filter is not excessively soiled.
With all of the above confirmed and corrected, start the bike and run until the engine is up to normal temperature. Adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the fastest idle and best throttle response. Then adjust the idle speed.
If you are still fouling the spark plug, verify that the carburetor has the correct size jets by consulting your owner's manual. Keep in mind that if you are operating your bike at an altitude higher than about 6,000 feet above sea level, the stock jetting may be too rich. Down-size the main jet in small increments until satisfactory operation and the correct spark plug color is obtained.
