Default 1994 CR125 non resistor spark plug damage?

     

Last year I ran a B9EG and saw in the service book which stated If you use a non resistor spark plug, you can damage the ignition system. I ran that plug for about 5 hours. I just put a BR9EG in it. What damage did I do or could have done, by not running a Resistor plug?

None. A non resistor plug can cause electrical interference with other electronics; tps, cdi, etc. It may cause poor or erratic ignition. I guess it could cause damage if it was creating detonation, but I would think you would notice that and not continue to ride it.

If the high voltage coil is made to be used with a resistor spark plug then using a non-resistor plug could burn it out due to the amount of electrical current exceeding the coils safe limit. But since yours still works I doubt it suffered any damage. Sometimes engineers are over-cautious.
