Sparkplugs

This spring my 1989 VTR250 didn't want to run. :(
I figured it had some water in the gas so I added SeaFoam to the tank.
NO improvement and when I drained the float bowls, there was no indication of any foreign substances.

Then I checked the repair log..... it was about 15k miles ago that I installed new spark plugs. :o
It might be a good idea to put in new ones!
I checked prices and it was almost as cheap to buy the iridium plugs as the regular ones.
So, I ordered a pair of NGK iridium plugs and installed them when I got them.
I also tightened the screw that holds the petcock handle in place.... don't want to screw that up.

Now, several tanks of fuel later, I am sure that I have solved that problem.
What a nice bike to ride!

AND the web site is back UP :D

Got a link to the ones you bought? Do you run 8’s or 9’s usually? Idk if that applies to iridium tho?
