Autolite plugs

On the weekend I put some Autolite plugs in my 250 since nobody would sell me NGK's on a Sunday.

And now I read that its not recommended to use those. Anyone have anything to say?

Should I change them out for NGK's or just leave them be?

Nice! Whats wheels and motor? Are you upgrading it to the 1.8L? Man, I'm not going to lie: Ninja250r> Miata. Although, I miss having a trunk lol.

That's just wrong. Since when does autolite makes plugs for bikes? Did you get the platinum one?


You should change it to NGK/Denso, they are better plugs with the correct heat setting.

No, just a longnose 1.6 Its more expensive to turbo the 1.8.
Did you get one?

Running an engine with an incorrect heat setting can cause predetonation, which can cause damage to pistons, rings, cylinders. If the plugs break apart, it could cause damage to valves, pistons, and heads. Running with wrong plugs can also cause missed firing, fuel inefficiency and lower performance.

I just went to the auto parts store and they cross referenced them for me.
