Hope you get the bike sorted and can get on with it soon! The anticipation of where this might take you (us) is killing me.

Beautiful sunny 60 degree day, and baby is back home and running great!

The spark plug broke at the base of the porcelain, where it attaches to the electrodes I guess, on the inside of the metal body. It moves in and out by a good 1/4". No codes now.



Lookie what I found on the way home too... temptations are strong... old vs new

Hey Skierd:

Cool photo. One of my old fart riding partners rides one of those, in much better exterior condition than that one. Switching around is definitely a blast from the past.

And you'll notice it's in the REAL Yamaha colors many of us older guys remember as what Yamaha's should look like.

I think our WR250Rs would look so much better if they looked like this:

I can relate to this on so many levels, I can't help but follow along.
Ride safe.

This is not the first "iridium" plug with that issue! I hate those things. Reminds me of Champions from the 70's. Many a race car didn't start because of crappy electrode insulators or blew motors during the race.

That's the idea, unless I find something used on the inexpensive side.
