TM125 Spark Plug
« on: September 08, 2007, 07:09:29 AM »
Hi there preparing to race debut me TM125 on Sunday.Still on some ancient plug which fouls/oils up if in wrong gear or stall. I bought a B8HS as I read was correct one gets to practise field and it's much shorter... ??? Can anyone tell me what is the right one for a TM 125 (1974 model). Thanks in advance and good to see site back again.

Loydee the correct plug for the TM125 is an B9EV (platinum tip racing plug) or simply run a B8ES. The 'HS' series of plugs are all short reach and not applicable for the TM.  ;)

Take a 9,9.5 and a 10 EGV with you.Then you can tune your engine to the track.Short squirts a 9 long, fast & flat out a 10.

Then when you finally wade out of the kiddie pool you realise there are 'wonder plugs" ;)

Yeah Bill "just because you have a head like a spark plug that don't make you a Champion" I'll give you that one to add to your collection Bill,I'd imagine you'll find a time to use it. ;D
Try a DENSO IW-29 the Champion's went out with flares and Kingswoods.I get them from Toyota dealers better than NGK egv's.
