I am planning on getting a set of BP5ES plugs for my bike as it seems to be fouling the plugs quite easily i realise it could well be a carb issue but as i have previously stated i am a bit of a numpty when it comes to carbs so i am trying the easy fix first, my question is do i need the bpr5es which i understand has a resister in or are standard bp5es okay
1) The plugs in the engine were over ten years old, but showed no signs of wear. I cleaned them with carb cleaner, then heated them with a propane torch until they glowed to burn off any residue.
2) The Denso IW20 part #5306 plugs had the large connector, but the tip can be screwed off to reveal the threaded connector that these bikes require. HOWEVER, since these plugs are also used in automotive applications, some manufacturer cross-over tables list as equivalent to the BP5ES, plugs with the large connector that DON'T screw off. Be sure to check the details if you decide to use a different brand.
3) After the switch, the bike started up much more quickly than before.
If you ever choose NGK Plugs for our 1300, then NEVER order any with the "11" digit at the end (i.e BPR6ES-11), as this means they have FIXED connection caps on the top.......not the SCREW TYPE which we need and to remove for fitment into the plug cap !
Why Have Four When You Can Have Six ?
