How To Clean Motorcycle Spark Plug



Spark Plug is one of the most important parts of a motorcycle. It is a small mechanical thing which is fitted with the engine. Main effort of spark plug is to create fire spark inside the engine and for this cause petrol burns inside the engine. A spark plug contains two electrodes. From the counterpoint one cable can be found and it is surrounded by ceramics. The ceramic insulator is covered by the metal plugs. It is fixed with the cylinder wall with the help of screws and because of this reason electrical connection builds. Other electrode can be found from lower part of the coverage and it is extended to the center point of the plug. Little gap can be found between two electrodes at their outfield. And this gap is known as the spark gap of a spark plug. Between the cylinder head and centre point electrode electric wires can be found and they are connected to the fire producing coils. This coil provides electric pulsation at high voltage.

Storage battery contains 12 volt electricity but this firing coil expands this voltage almost up to30000 volt. For internal burning of engine with the help of air and for creating electricity the spark gap is enough. For ignites reason insulation creates and it gives the engine enough power to run. Because of the sparking decadences happens between two electrodes. Exhaust gas contains carbon and those are gathered into these two electrodes.
