    Anybody have one of these ? Do they work? My compresor is rated for 5.8 SCFM @90psi, think it'll work ok?

    I saw one in use once but cant figure out why since new spark plugs are so cheap, plus they do nothing for worn plugs, only clean dirty ones. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    That's what I've always done just thought this might do a better job, besides them wire brushes don't feel so good on your finger tips /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifand I'm allways looking for a new toy /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I have one, and as long as I keep the pressure above 60 PSI, it works great. I have to use shorty plugs ($30 a set!) because of my headers, and I am lazy, so I bought one for $20 at my local O'Reilly's. Works great to clean the fouling off when I flood out my engine (danged manual choke).

    if your going through plugs on 2 strokes, then the carb isnt jetted right. granted they dont last as long as 4 stroke. on my bike they last about 6 months of riding
