Splitfire plugs

Hi!

Does anyone use splitfire plugs or something like that?I use stock,but i just remembered i used it on my little bike,and feel slight improvement...iīm wondering if they will have benefits with the 944.

i did for awhile. no improvement - it's only a sparkplug for god's sake! went back to Bosch because they are cheaper and generally more lauded.

i changed plugs recently to bosch super 4s from one champion and 3 bosch previous owner had fitted.One was really knackered(champion).The awkward to get at one.I think it was a previous_previous plug change.Engine runs like silk.Bosch super 4s are the ones.

Dont believe the hype. Splitfire wont do anything for your car. Im also guessing that it may be bad for your engine since that much spark will increase your temp inside the combustion chamber. Just stick with Bosch or NGK. Dont get Platinums, use the regular ones.

I have found that BERU siverstone are the best plug for my 951. They make a definite difference in performance.

iīm not expecting more hp or torque in 944,slightly more in my 80cc two stroke bike...but maybe better starting at low temperatures,for example...it has a little logic.... I suppose itīs marketing after all.

They are quite expensive,if they have no real improvements iīm not trying it.

I have justed changed to Bosche 4s and am very impressed in my 951. I am also trialling them in my Mazda 323, with no discernable difference compared to NGK yet, but I haven't pushed the car hard... YET!

I have a 80 cc bike,yes....itīs not forbidden to "old" people!

I am 24, I buyed it when i was 16,still have..itīs a yamaha tzr 80,not awesome,but the best bike a 16 yr old guy could own.
Later i wanted a CBR 600,but,donīt ask why,my bike passion decreased at the same level 944 passion increases...

And...i donīt wanna sell it...i donīt use often the bike but....itīs like my family....

Hey...no offense..... I have a few bikes in the stable and figured you were too big for one, but I've seen 'young men' on the trails on an 80cc plenty of times.

I have 6 kids and 5 of them have bikes; 92 KX80 (w/100cc jug - selling it now since my 16 yr old drives (cars, that is) and has lost interest in dirt bikes), 91 XR 80, 97 CR 125, 98 CR 250, 2001 KX 65 and a 2003 XR 50 and almost forgot....an 82 LT 125 4 wheeler that looks like crap, but does roll on its own power .

Yeah, we are a dirtbiking family and the kids love to ride. I'm slowly losing interest myself only because of time constraints...And, what I really (I think) I want to do is sell it and get the 944 in tip top shape....I know with 2300 bucks, I can do a lot and have some left over........so, we'll see....

TZR 80? I'm not familiar with that......sounds like a mini roadracer??

Yes itīs a mini roadracer...taking account maximun speed is about 75-80 mph...But i like it,i can cruise at 70 mph and attain about 60 mpg or more..and never had any problem with her...

Yes,iīm too old to ride it,maybe thatīs why the last ride was about 8 months ago...Dirtbikes are not very common here...i only saw a friends WZ 250 and husqvarna 125....I never ride them because iīm sure iīll hurt myself bad

Nice if you want to keep the 944 in good shape,it deserves it,but...why donīt you buy a 951?Come on,the dark side is calling you! I know,I know...wife,kids....no room for one more in the family!
