Does anyone have any recommendations for spark plugs on a shee other than the NGK that they come with?
Are there any out there that last longer, don't foul as easy or just all-around perform better.

I think NGK is just about the best you can get, I been using them for a little over 5 years, and I will continue to do so. Are you having a problem with them?

I've fouled a few but other than that, no. Are you using the standar B8ES or are you using a G or V rated NGK?

I use what the manual calls for, a B8ES, all I know is I get my moneys worth from how long they last me, maybe your jetting is a tad rich?

I'm with PR, maybe it's a little rich. My manual says to use BR8ES instead of B8ES, though. Mine's a '02, did they change the ignition system at some point? does'nt the "R" stand for "resistor" some dumbass tried saying it stood for "race"lol.

I have to agree with the other posts, NGK makes an excellent plug. Just stay away from Champion Spark Plugs, I wouldn't use them for my lawn mower nevermind my car or, God forbid, my Blaster ;-).

Another vote for the NGK B8es. The NGK BR8ES will work, but as someone posted the "R" stands for resistor. From what I gather... the resistor is built into the spark plug to help stop engine noise bleeding into your car radio. Obvously there's no radio on your Banshee, so the "r" plug is not necessary. If your fouling out NGK B8ES plugs, the spark plugs are not your problem, look into what is causing your fouling problems and fix that.

Along the lines of what meat was saying, the resistor contolls interference with radio signals, therefore if you run a non resister plug around the house while the tv is on, you will notice the tv gets staticky,or radio gets bad reception, that is why most snowmobile manufacturers recommend the br line. just my 2cents

I prefer to use the NGK B8EV's seem to be a little crisper on the throttle response.
