When I pulled the plugs today to do the valve adjustment, this is what they looked like.

How do they look?  This is on a 2016 GRiSO running the factory map.  The right plug appeared to have slightly more carbon than the left one.

Are they out of the engine OR out of their packaging Wink ; ie how old are they ? I pulled 20,000 miles old ones recently - and stuck back again....they looked good but not as clean as yours !

Which in and of itself is a bit of a worry as yours were in a motor that was terminally ill! Laughing

Really though they look OK but not ideal. Worry less, ride more. Plug chops only really tell a tale on new plugs.

The plugs had 911 miles on them when I took the photo.  Now they have more.  Very Happy

Pete, please explain "the plugs look OK but not ideal". What is the nature of your guarded approval please.
Cheers and thanks

Didn’t know how many hours they had on them, that’s all.

That's lean. Too lean. Get some petrol in there!
