    CamDayKX125(4),

    For your bike, NGK recommends BR9EIX
    http://ngksparkplugs.com/apps/motorc...d=1817&type=ir

    For most 125's a heat range in the "9's" is good ie...BR9EG or BR9ES, a BR8 plug is normally for a 250.

    http://www.kaila.net/tl125/tl125ngkcode.html

    B= 14 mm thread diameter
    R= Resistor Plug
    9= heat range
    E= 19 mm thread reach
    S= Racing plug

    Here is some good reading:

    Good luck, Steve

    If your doing typical MX or other high rpm, high load riding the 9 plug is the correct range. However, if your doing mostly trail riding or otherwise low load, lower rpm riding the 9 is too cold to stay clean and an 8 would be better. I perfer the EIX type as they have a finer electrode and are more resistant to fouling.

    They are not as common and they come at a price. I run them in my 250. They are about $10 or $11 at the local shop in MS.

    Don't waste your money on expensive plugs. Pick up a BR9ES from Pep Boys or Autozone for $1.50 a plug. If it fouls, try the hotter BR8ES plug.

    The EIX works great for me. I typically am riding hard on a MX track, but sometimes like to putt around with my wife who is just getting into the sport. I would risk fouling at extended slow riding with the ES plug but have less issues with the EIX. I keep jetting spot on, but for whatever reason the CR with jetting that works best when riding hard will foul (slowly carbon foul) from slower riding. Of course I could re-jet and tune the bike for slower riding, but then it wouldn't be as good when I'm riding hard -get it? I find the extra resistance to fowling is also useful in harescrambles where you have dead engine starts and frequently have to idle for a while to get the engine to temp, then shut down then the flag drops. Just my experence. BTW my local auto and cycle shops carry the BR8EIX (what my CR250R takes) and they are about 6bux - the ES plugs are 2 or 3. Really, 3 bux a year isn't a bid deal.
