They work well with 2T rich mixture and rarely foul.

Also keep 2 additional plugs with you just in case. Later you can reuse the foul plug. Just get a small cloth, wet it in a petrol and wrap it on plug head then burn it. This will burn the carbon and will make the plug ready for next used (ofcourse unless the plugs are short)

Later, after the run-in you can switch over to NGK Iridium
Abhi jee would you be able to give me a product name.
thanks for the advise

NGK Iridium (it will cost you 450-550 INR each)

It has the pointed filament so gives more precise sparks and do not foul easily.

"Mico Super" were the spark plug which were long back in bajaj chetak and hence withstand high 2T oil flow.

Default Rd 350

@ Desi: Good to see the restoration of this RD

I remember the efforts we took to get it from the Transport, and bring it to your place. Also remember how people were looking at us when we were towing the RD with a P220. It was some fun.

I would love to see this RD getting back to glory. Let me know if I can get you any help.


all cheers

dcs
OT: Post this RD project, I need to restore my Karizma too.
