Spark plug pic

At 2300 miles. The last 1100 miles are with the Scorpion muffler installed and no carb re-jetting. Looks pretty good to me.

Yea that plug looks good. I think bigger jets are really not needed. My bike has an STrapp IDS2, airbox mod with a Uni filter and I still have the stock jets. Just turned the Idle air screw out 3.5 and used a Dynojet needle in the 3rd slot and it runs great.

Hey any news on that Victory?

I'm gonna pass on it cause I think the dealer is pulling a scam. It's common knowledge that early Vics would reset the odometer to ZERO when the battery is disconnected. This particular '00 V92SC has worn out tires, rusted exhaust and the dealer is claiming 13XX miles. Gonna check on a '05 VTX1300 that my credit union repoed.

Yea worn tires and 13xx miles don't add up. Good call. Good luck with the VTX.

Hey Tom,

I am in no way a mech. or spark plug expert. but that plugs looks pretty good. you should have seen the plug I pulled from my klr, when I first got it. at least the tip and gap look clean burning, if its running good dont worry about a thing.
