SPARK PLUG READING
Reading the spark plug can provide information about engine performance. Reading a plug that has been in use indicates spark plug operation, air/fuel mixture composition and engine conditions (such as oil consumption and pistons).
Before checking the spark plug, operate the ATV under a medium load for approximately 6 miles.
Avoid prolonged idling before shutting off the engine. Remove the spark plug as described in this section. Examine the plug, and compare it to those shown in Figure 71, typical. Refer to the following sections to determine the operating conditions.
When reading the plugs to evaluate carburetor jetting, start with a new plug and operate the ATV at the load that corresponds to the jetting information desired. For example, if the main jet is in question, operate the ATV at full throttle: shut the engine off and coast to a stop.
If the piston rings or a new piston were installed, the cylinder was honed or rebored, or major lower end work performed, break in the engine as if it were new.
The performance and service life of the engine depends greatly on a careful and sensible break-in.
For the first 5-10 hours of operation, use no more than one-third throttle and vary the speed as much as possible within the one-third throttle limit.
Avoid prolonged or steady running at one speed as well as hard acceleration.
