Are they wet? Is the fouling preventing the engine running? When does it foul them, on a ride or just starting in the garage?

Do you rev it when starting cold (before it has warmed up)?
TPS ok?

M2 has a carb ie. no tps.

Is the choke closing properly ?
Is that air filter big enough/clean ?
Is the carb flooding ?
Has anyone changed the jetting ?
How much oil does the bike use....any blue smoke ?

it'll be fine on a ride, for a few trips out at least then it wont start and plugs will be wet and bit grubby

no blue smoke
it stage oned (before i owned it)
got one of them round air filters on as opposed to the original, have noticed that does get wet now and then, not majorly.

it doesnt seem to use much oil i check it regulaly but rarely needs topping up
i dont rev it i warm it up on the choke

the fouling is preventinf it from starting
