I've heard that the reed spacers don't do a lot but lighten your wallet. Are you running high compression? If not then you don't need to run 93 octane. The higher octane is only needed in high compresssion engines to prevent detonation.

Why the hotter plugs? I believe the typical heat range plug would be a 9 and if you bumped compression you may want a cooler plug, not a hotter one.

High compression '99 ZR 440 Sno-Pro uses BR10EYA plugs - found them on eBay for around $20 per box of 10 including shipping.

Are you using some type of orange sealant between the cylinder base & case? Was that same sealant used on the heads as well? I dunno

Yes, but if you don't use the proper base gaskets, you are changing the port timing & compression by a bit.

If you use used gaskets and the sealant, it would at least be closer to what it's supposed to be than with no gaskets. Are you using the base gasket & sealant together?

The thickness of the gaskets provides the correct spacing.

There is no problem using a gasket sealer on the base gaskets, my factroy service manual even recommends it, so a thin smear of RTV, or an aerosol sealer should be OK. I don't use it on the heads because you can't do good job on the o-rings, but I still think you should use a proper heat range plug to avoid burning a hole in the centre of the pistons. I'm also curious as what happened to the orginal carbs. Why would you need to replace them?

OK then, for a minute there I was hoping you didn't go without gaskets.

Sure looks like there's a lot there, the way it's all oozed out though.

Correct me if I'm wrong but with Ngk plugs, the higher the number the colder the plugs heat range.
the normal plug for a 95 ZRT 800 is a Br9eya and would be hotter than a BR10eya. my2cents

I run BR9ES plugs in my95 ZRT800. Thats what it came with from new. My 95' service manual lists BR9ES. I have never run the BR9EYA plugs. Whats the difference between the two?

Both are the same, except the YA has a v-groove electrode that helps prevent fouling.

They're interchangeable without any problems.


TRIPLESROCK, you got it right about the number/heat range thing. :thumbsup:

Thanks A.G.

I ran them in my 97 ZRT600 and just kept using them.
