You change your plug every 100 miles to keep a nice clean one in hand- what do you do with the old plug? Stop throwing them away, and recondition them!

This is REAL SAVINGS putting MONEY in YOUR pocket!!

That is interesting Nate. But Nate what about a person like me who changes his plug say every 4,000, 5,000 miles or even more? Would this product make sense for me to buy?

I think that depends on the amount of Nate's commission.

Of course this product makes sense for you to buy. Why waste new plugs on plug chops when you're tweaking your carb and putting on new bolt-on accessories every weekend?

Soon you'll save enough money that you could afford to buy a real motorcycle!

I guess I will just front the $2.00 max for each plug when I need it. Doesnt the seem a little excessive in the grand scheme of things? Plus sparkplugs in general are consumables, they lose their middle part after a while. right?

Silly Nate.

My scooter is worth more than your 'cause I still have the original, oil fouled plugs in it. Your crash last year was prolly caused by some incompatibility issue with that shiny clean plug of yours.

I'm just sayin'...

I think the crash was caused by the fact that I was trying to change the plug while moving. My odo had _just_ hit 100 miles, and I like to change it right then, but I was in a hurry. I've got the procedure down fairly well, but this time I had a mental lapse.
