2018 CT Sparkplug Insulator Color

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

2018 CT Sparkplug Insulator Color

These are sparkplugs with 6100 miles on them under all sorts of riding conditions from 6200' in the Smokeys to my flatland Florida back roads.
The light khaki coloration on the tips of the insulators indicate a near perfect mixture, just slightly on the rich side, which is what I need in
our hot climate.

Unleaded fuel, and particularly unleaded with 10% ethanol added, does not create the old "coffee with cream" or dark tan color that leaded gas
used to make.
