You are NOT going to believe this. I went to my local bike shop today to pick up the supplies needed for my oil, final drive and coolant changes. I also wanted to pick up a set of spark plugs, 2 to bring on the trip and 2 as spares for when I need to change my plugs.
Anyway, I had no plans to change the plugs tonite but while unpacking the bag of goodies, I decided to open a box and look at the plug. Guess what? the dang thing is used! Thats right, its full of carbon soot and obviously had a few miles on it. WOW, I say, so I grab another box and open it, guess what?
Can't believe what I am seeing, so I HAVE to look at box 3, well?
Reach down for box 4 and wouldn't you know it? ALL 4 BOXES had old used up plugs. Good thing I checked them out hey?
Moral? Open & inspect what you can while at the counter and don't take it for granted.
