I would not put champs in a Honda...use:

Spark plug Standard: DPR8Z (NGK), X24GPR-U (DENSO)

For extended high speed riding: DPR9Z (NGK), X27GPR-U (DENSO)

NGK is the plug most recommended by Japanese engine manufacturers. That is what I always run.

to me there is a big differance i have 400/ex i use to sanddrag with i use ngk dpr8z. champions dont hold up under the heat produced by the 400/ex if you notice on longer rides your motor oil will get lower due to heat evaporation produced.

      Hey there.  I have a problem with finding the rite sparkplug for my 2007 xtreme typhoon 125cc.  No one or place has been able to find the right spark plug for it.  Im hoping someone here may have an idea or can point me in the right direction of where to find one.  The old one said ac 108 and one guy at an auto parts store said it was a 10mm spark plug.  Dont know if that was rite or not.  Also if anyone knows of a website i can download the manual for it, that would be very helpful as well.

      Hi All...
      ok ive brought my son a Apache 100cc quad bike ans it seems to have a spark issue..
      When i got it i couldnt get a spark then i messed around with it and got a spark and got it running, then it just died after 30 mins, now no spark so i replaced spark plug, ignition coil, cdi, ignition switch, stator and regulator and got a spark again now its gone again? 
      Ive check the wiring to see if any loose connectors, cant start by electric start because the starter clutch is broken so can only kick start it and thats a pain as it sometimes slips ( needs new teeth on it)
      the kill switch us 2 wires that are just loose no switch anymore as it broken and the other wires i think are for the lights and the electric start lever which is now broke
      Im crap with electrics so not sure how to trace and test
      also my new stator has 6 wires instead of 5 so i am unsure how to wire it, see pictures of mine the correct one and the other off ebay which they say to re-wire
      any help with this guys?

      Hi all,
      I recently acquired an old Bayou from a neighbor that I cleaned up a got running, then from nowhere a problem crops up where it refuses to start........ I pull the plug and it has no spark, pulled the plug cap off and laid the bare wire on the exhaust header and still nothing......once in a while though when I push the starter button but as I let off the button it might spark once. Now it did begin sparking normally just once and I plugged everything back in and it ran normally again until I turned the engine off. Next time I tried starting it we were back to no spark or the one spark deal.
      I have tested the stator wires at 140 ohm, the pick up at 130 ohm (I can't seem to find a reliable number for these values online), I bought a new ignition coil and ignition switch on chance those may have been the problem but were not, not sure where to look from here......... does the starter relay switch have anything to do with the ignition on these? I know these older Bayou's are magneto type ignitions and do not need battery power to operate but I wonder if there are safety switches involved I may not be aware of. Also, can someone point me to a good wiring schematic for the magneto 220's? Pre 95 I believe.
      thanks for any help!

      Hey everyone. I just got a 93 Suzuki King Quad 300 for a project and I really don't know much about 4 wheelers. I am very new to all this. My problem is my ignition coil on my 4 wheeler keeps going bad. My quad will run for about 3 to 5 minutes then it goes bad. I thought it may have been a short so I traced some wires and did find one exposed. I fixed the wire then the quad ran for about 20 minutes before it died again. don't know what to do. Im tired of buying coils and having them go bad so quick. please help! Thanks!
