Brisk Spark Plug in 640

I can't find the post where I said I'd reply once I tried it so here it is...
after 500km of using the BOR12LGS in my 640 LC4, I have to say it works great. Most of the claims I've read are true. The most noticable differences from most to least are:
- a little more oomph everywhere and rev's more freely (it was kinda flat over 6500, now it revs to 7500 very quickly)
- less prone to stalling when plodding around trails in 1st gear near idle
- fast starting. 1st kick from cold with the kick starter
I'll be pulling the plug out for a check soon. I'm using a 157.5 now and the soot in the pipe is a little lighter in color and the exhaust is blueing further back then it was.
If its doing a meltdown like I've read some sceptics say, (like sparking to the piston) its doing it very quietly.
Its the Akropovic of spark plugs, except at $10-20 its a lot more power per $.

Note: the body of the plug is slightly larger than the NGK, so it takes a good shove to get the cap on on. (more water tight now)

I got such a load of crap when I started a thread about spark plugs... you woulda thunk I insulted somebody's dog!

anyways I recollect someone or somebodies saying the Brisk are prone to failure... but your test sounds good.

care to take a pic of the business end of that plug?

His test is completely anecdotal, just like "I use STP and get 45 more horsepower".....

There, how's that for a load

Hi Meat

Thats not true, I waited til I did development and QA testing before I reported. I'll post a pic after I yank it out. Hopefully, without any molten blobs of aluminum attached.

ahhh, its nice to see the peanut gallery is on the job!

dag, your dog just needs a haircut and we'll be square.

chrisC, didn't you see the dyno curve? jeebsus your askin alot for a sparkplug test... an anecdote is probably all a spark plug is worth.

i would just like to see if its one of those open face old-skool race jobbies. you know cut the ground back until the electrode is fully exposed

does that make the plug hotter?

yep, fully x-posed electrode - that's the old racer's trick I hear... where are all the old foggies when you need someone to recollect?

english only? if you want to be democratic about it try Chinese or Farsi, maybe Spanish out of the romance languages...

Where did you source the plug from?

kinda like the emissions ratings in Cali

LEV - low emissions vehicle
ULEV - ultra-low emissions vehicle
SULEV - super-ultra-low emissions vehicle
PZEV - partial-zero emissions vehicle
ZEV - zero emissions vehicle

when you have named something and then you come up with something better, its pretty damn easy to paint yourself into the corner of stupidity...

still the plugs appear to improve performance, based upon the dyno results - UTI is no slouch.

And I'm more prone to believe the independant observations of a fellow Advrider than some for-profit website.
