There is much to learn about motorcycle spark plugs. Actually, there is more than what meets youreyes.Let us distinguish the important difference in spark plugs threaded ends. They come in four diameters and lengths. They come in nominal 14, 10, 12 and 18 millimeters diameters. Previously, there was a slight difference in thread configuration especially in different countries. However, the international standardization of the thread forms made it uniform. These new dimensions are now being followed by Motorcycle Parts manufacturers.
There can be lots of error in selecting the best motorcycle parts especially in the case of spark plugs. The very usual error is using 3/4-inch plugs in 1/2 –inch holes. The result of the same is horrible. When the plug threads are exposed in combustion, they become filled with deposits. Consequently, it will be hard to remove the plug without removing the hole threads. Quite the reverse, if you use a short plug to a deep hole, the deposit will fill the hole and it will be hard to re-install the right size plug.The worst error is the use of overly-long plug. The exposed threads absorb great amount of heat from the combustion process which improve the plug-nose temperatures. As a consequence, the side electrode functions as a glow plug. Early ignition or runaway pre-ignition causes higher combustion chamber temperatures that can destroy the engine.
Heat Range Demands
Hot plugs come with a long insular nose. They lead heat high into the plug body before it returns to the cylinder head.
Short-nosed plugs, on the other hand, have shorter heat path. Consulting the spark plug manufacturers regarding the plug’s heat range can be of great help. This may somehow clear the cobwebs at the back of your mind regarding heat range demands.Knowing which plugs are colder or hotter may be easy if you stick to the same brand however, it becomes perplexing when you change from one brand to another.

The Suzuki Intruder motorcycle has been a long time favorite of many devotees. Indeed, since the time when the first model debuted in 1985, it has remained a popular motorcycle in the new market as well as the used market. Let’s see why.When a person wanted a cruiser in the ’80’s, he didn’t have much to choose from. Mainly, he could purchase a Harley-Davidson or go without. That was great and all if you liked Harleys, but what if you wanted a different bike?That was when the Japanese cruiser lines came into use.When the Japanese makers discovered they could make money off of the cruiser buying American public, it didn’t take each company any time at all to come out with their own brand of cruiser-style motorcycle. This was superb for those who were not strictly American buyers only. At perhaps 50% less money in most cases a rider could have a fresh new cruiser that was every bit as practical and satisfying as its American complement.But there was just one problem. Though all four prime Japanese manufacturers (Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha) introduced their own models, it was Suzuki who seemed to get it right the first time with its Suzuki Intruder motorcycle. The other three manufacturer’s cruisers seemed to combine a cruiser style with a street bike functionality, a mishmash that most riders found a little on the ugly side. The 1986 VS 700 Intruder, however, was clean, pure cruiser from start to finish.Let’s start by delving a little into the engine. The Intruder’s motor is a 45-degree v-twin with overhead cams. This setup holds true for the whole Intruder series of cruisers (VS 700, VS 750, VS 800, VS 1400). The cooling method for these motorcycles – other than the VS1400, which is both air and oil-cooled – is by liquid.
The tranny utilizes the same case as the crankshaft. And all the power is transmitted to the rear wheel by way of a shaft drive
