At 1000 miles, I replaced the stock plug with a colder one, as per Honda's recommendations for extended high speed riding. I've been running the same one since then, and I now have 5000 miles on my Rincon.

The plug numbers for extended high speed riding are IFR6L11 (NGK) or VK20PRZ11 (DENSO).

My dealer told me the rincon and rubicon stock plug should be ok for 15000 miles. I have 11000 on my rincon and the plug is just fine.

while my stock plug is working just fine and i have a understanding about a hot and cold type sparkplugs,it dose have me asking do they make high performance sparkplugs for atvs like they do for cars and trucks? a multi-ground electrode sparkplug looks cool but is it practical for use on a rincon?
