austin n r,
I have the original plug in my XX. The machine has 100 hours on it. When I had the valves checked at 50 hours I was told that the plug was just fine. I'll probably replace it at 125 hours anyway.

125-150 hours sounds about right. You might want to replace with a better plug than the stock plug.

This plug will probably not be able to be gotten at a dealer because it's not for a quad or bike. I got mine at Kragen because it's actually the plug for a car.... Toyota, I think.

I like the plug that roadkill has listed its a laser platnium NGK with dual electrodes I've been running it for a few weeks on some longer trips and can't believe the throttle response it has added! I usually change my plug every 150 hours! It's hard to judge tanks of gas to hours cause of riding style and conditions.
