X2. Each bike company also has air filter oil. Chain saw bar oil is also very tacky and will probably stay in place. You can buy that in gallon jugs. Plain old motor oil will also work for a short time. It will migrate down to the bottom of the filter.

X2. PJ1 or BelRay is good. I always prefer the liquid form. Each bike company also has air filter oil. Chain saw bar oil is also very tacky and will probably stay in place.

Tried the bar oil one time and it did not work very well not sticky enough and let dirt through. I use the UNI filter oil in the spray can works great and simple to use.

Looks like it's running lean. Mine was exactly the same. I run mine in cold weather constantly, and probably will re-jet soon to compensate. For the time being, I installed a plug one heat range colder (ngk, heat range 7) to prevent the spark plug from acting like a glow plug and detonating. Its an iridium as well, and has been there for a year. never fouled up, even when running on the choke for extended periods warming up the quad before plowing the yard.

I also plow all the time. I will run the iridium plug with the uni filter and then check. We are suppose to get 15 cm of snow so it will get a good run.

Very lean, engine must not run very well like that.
I also pulled that after the bikes been sitting for a week. Would that make a difference?

Letting it sit for LONG periods of time may cause partial blockage in jets, and leaning out the air/fuel mixture. Mine sits in an unheated garage for 1 week at a time, with no problems. My plug looked almost the same as yours does, and I figure I simply need to go up 1 jet size on the main jet, and close the idle air mixture adjustment 1/8 to 1/4 turn. that should correct it, OR you can adjust the air mix screw as stated, and drop the clip on the main needle 1 notch. Also look for air leaks on the carb boot.

Ok so the iridium plug looked like this when I pulled it last night.


So I dropped the needle one notch and this is what it looked like today after a good rip around the yard and uo and down the road.


Look better im just wondering if the iridium plugs burn hptter so the dont turn brown???

it still is running extremely lean. You said you dropped the needle one notch... Did you mean that you dropped the clip on the needle one notch? dropping the clip one notch, raises the needle. (raising the needle makes it richer). If you raised the clip a notch, and dropped the needle, you made it leaner. That plug shows signs of very high combustion temperatures, and can result in burned valves, melted piston dome, etc...

I dropped the clip one notch. (Trying to make it richer). Seems to run better though should I drop it one more notch.
