Spark Plug

Can you tell by the pic if it is still any good. It is the OEM plug ID so might be the original (06 RMZ 450).

Is this a joke? Where's the center electrode - looks like an ice pick.
Kind of like my tire. Was it time to replace it?

Your paint and brick color look familiar. Are you in my garage?

I will change, thanks. I havent dealt with iridium plug and didn't know what to expect. I might be in your garage if I need to borrow some tools.

I just bought the bike last week and I am checking everything before I even take it to the track. So spark plug is one thing. I'm also doing the valves now. Then check slack in chain, and lastly make sure suspension is all in check. So it will be awhile until I can go out and play.

Many performance/racing plugs have very small diameter electrodes. You really can't tell from the picture if this is one or not, though.

Here's one example - NGK Iridium.

I just got a new one from the dealership. Only $12 which is high, but I have been reading $25 or more on the net. So I guess everything on the internet isn't true. That's weird.
