I am really suprised with the support of NGK. *My experience with Ngk is you buy a box of 10 and 3 work. *This is not just one experience. *Its like a plug with no perks. *They dont offer anything except a spark. *

I used to do work for Robert Bosch. *I worked in Quality control. *Bosch makes really good plugs. *They are almost identical to each other. *Ngk on the otherhand had diffrenct sized plugs 6 BR9ES would not be the same. *They have slightly diffrent sized electrode and the internal workings did not look like a quality plug. *

Right now I think splitfire tripple Plat are the best. *They use a Platinum electrode but also use Platinum pads on the ends of the plug. *Platium gets hotter then copper and burns up carbon getting ride of fouling. *But the biggest advantage is that the spark travles through platinum much better and easier then copper. *This alone will save the Stator, Coil, Ignition on any motor. *It is even said that you can increase the gap ever so slightly on a plat plug to get more power because with the less resistance the spark has more power to jump the gap giving you More spark area and a better more efficent burn. *

Please dont go opening the gap if your not sure how much.

The bottom line is that *a platinum plug what ever the make will create less strain on the ignition of your engine making ignition components last longer. *They also burn of carbon making a cleaner combustion which pervents detonation because it is the ultra hot carbon sticking to the copper plugs that cause the fuel to pre ignite. *The splitfire tripple platinum have a warrenty and from what I saw last year are made with excellent quality. *They work as intended and Anyone with a Rotax 500, 583,or 670 Rotary valve engine should buy a pair and try them. *You wont belive the results. Your engine will start easier then any series 3 engine right now except the tripple. *I swear to you. *It will turn your hard to start rotary valve engine into somting your kids could start. *plus way more throttle responce, *No stalling, More top speed. And absoultly no fouling you will never need to pull the plugs all season to clear a flooded engine. *

Looking back, Only to see the sound barrier.

The advantage of the splitfire tripple platinum will work on any machine. *It will save you ignition and make it easier on all electronic components. *But the real benifits Easier starting, Throttle responce, Top speed is only really noticeable in the Rotary valve engine. *

I stumbled on to them my self last year. *I own a mach z that runs perfect buy was always disapointed with my 98 Mxz 500. *Once it was running its an awsome machine but to get it running. *I was afraid when i went night riding with it to shut it of in fear it wouldnt start. *I must have spent some frustrating moments trying to swap the plugs with the spares and unflood the machine. *Then last year i was looking through a catalog and I saw the tripple platinum. *It had a cool picture and looked good so i bought them at this big snowmobile show. *I put them in mid season. *I was in SHOCK. *I primed it 4 times and pulled the cord. *Before the cord got half way it was running and it came on with a roar not a stumbling idle. *I shut it of and did it again with no primer this time same thing. *Its so good that it almost starts every time one of the pistons gets to top dead center. *

Only once did i manage to flood it with the kill switch on of i tryed to start it and it wouldnt go I realised it was the switch and turned it on. *I put the throttle to full because thats what your suppost to do and in one pull it fired up. *The machine is such a user friendly machine to drive now that i even told my dealer about it. *He told me that Bombardier was recommending platinum plugs for that style of engine but didnt want to tell anyone. *I dont know why but thats the way it is. *


Conversion if anyone wants to try them.

BR9ES - 01-TP406B

Those platinum plugs sound like the plug to have but what about them in the 800 twin.I see they take a BR9ECS plug,how will they match up? ???

Im not sure but i dont think you should switch. *That new plug is supposidly a big help in resisting detonation. *Weight for splitfire to make a plug that matches the ngk design. *Plus the real advantages are mostly found on the rotary valve engines. *My newer 600series three grand touring had no diffrence except for the fact the plugs lasted all year. *

I would run the new NGKs. *It must add someing to this machine or else skidoo wouldnt have wandered from the standered BR9ES.
