Well I was thinking

Surely it stands the chance of being a very simple mod if :
Altitude, gas type, or hwy driving is an issue.
For me its about whether it might make a difference in slow riding if thats what you do regularly (the peanut gallery can be quiet back there)
By slow riding I refer to single track, rocky stuff and mud etc.
In these situations I am usually in a lower gear and revving a bit higher so maybe a plug that stays cooler longer might help.
Just thinking since I am about to clean mine and maybe change it during winter maintenance.

Use a hot one if u live in a cold country. Whatever u use don't tighten it too much or this what's gonna happen to it .


One of my plugs blew up in my DR650 during a ride last Saturday.

So a hot one spring and fall and a cooler one in the summer then ?
Any brand preferences folks

OH my wallet is tight but plugs I go finger tight with a socket and then one quarter to a half with a finger length wrench depending on whether its a new plug or not.
The new plug will have a fresh washer on it and require a little more tightening but I only pull on the wrench with one finger and if it hurts it too tight

I always been using NGK, cheap and works fine if u go on ebay u can get a good deal on a bulk. The higher the number on the plug the hotter it is (i think), when the thread is redish spectrum color that is a hot plug (i think it's a 10ES).

I use stock style NGK plugs. Rarely do I ever stray from the factory recommended heat range.

Yes, I believe so. The description says:
Magura Hydraulic Clutch

Fits: 2006 SUZUKI DR-Z 400S

Part# 1011630009


I just picked 2006 because it is in the middle of the model run.

I use NGK in everything I own, from lawn mowers to turbo cars. I can't imagine using a different heat range in this motor unless it had some serious compression mods or noticeable pinging.

Why????????? Why would you want to, more weight, more complicated and more expensive!!! ...and if you have to rebuild it in the future, where you gonna get a rebuild kit. I say KISS (keep it simple stupid) ( no flame intended). Sure every now and then a cable goes bad. Spend money on another set of tires which would be a better use of money.

I said it sounded "cool", not "practical".

I'm a dyed in the wool KISSer when it matters. I couldn't really see using it on my DRZ, but in performance applications I would be tempted.

I'm shopping for a mountain bike after a 10 year layoff and to my surprise most of them have hydraulic brakes now.
