Although I have not tried the ML50 on my TS I have used one in my single cylinder veteran car and just did 4000kms over the last month without removing it.

Cheers

Interesting - anyone know what heat range they compare to in NGK ? I have been using the NGK AB6 but would prefer a long reach plug for many of my bikes

Cheers !

I know there has been the discussion of using the 14mm plugs with reducers fitted however  I just thought maybe someone may have tried these.

It may be the case where I just simply try and then let you guys know.....

We have used the reducers with NGK ES plugs - the one advantage of that is the TS usually seem to run differently front and back cylinders so you can put different heat ranges in. We are back to the 18mm plugs now though

I've run the ML50 plugs in various machines which will take a 3/4" reach plug. In the 1914 Radco two stroke the improvement in performance over a 1/2" reach Champion D16 was very noticeable. Make sure to measure before using a long reach plug!

Thanks for that info. I sent a message to Greens Spark Plugs who make them - they said it covers the same heat range an NGK AB6 covers
