ES is more prone to fouling.

EYA is what a Firecat needs, but I prefer the BR9EIX Iridium- they will work in place of either plug.

"I took off the second day and before I got on the river got crossed up on a road approach and had a pretty minor get-off. The hard thing I have with the Yamaha is it’s just heavy enough where once it gets crossed-up in the air I can’t get it back. I knew it was going to land hard so I relaxed and let it happen. I got back up and looked at the sled, windshield was on it, handguards were on it and I was like, “Awesome!” Then I went to pick it up and my groin went pop and I thought, “Wow, that really hurts.”

"For us, we’re at a disadvantage; we’re heavier and short of horsepower. I mean, the Cat 600 puts out more horsepower than our 1049cc four stroke. The one thing we should have is big wheels, when you’re on the pin for a while the thing just keeps pulling. But I got passed by Dan Ebert (on a Cat) in the 500 on that service road where we were pinned for probably 10 miles. But you know, that Yamaha runs awesome. I’m more than happy with it, the thing runs awesome."

I spend half my paychecks on sledding- the rest I just waste.

Ditto. I've changed them before I've fouled them.

For what the BR9EIX costs, I can replace 4 EYA's. Been running EYA's for years with no issues. Change at beginning of season although don't have to.

Or how about this for the answer to your question! Br9EYA, its spark is actually a Y, the spark itself splits. The BR9ES; the spark itself resembles an S. The br9eya is in my oponion a better plug, twice as much spark as far as im conserned. you can run br9eya's in a sled that requires br9es, if the sled requires a br9es and you run a eya, it wont run for shit...

all educated guesses!!

hope this might help

Dont guess if you dont know...

EYA is an ES with a "V" groove in the electrode, they dont foul as easy, and cost about the same,(as of today msrp from cat is $2.95 ea)

If you need to get home you can use a es with no problems, if you are going to buy plugs dont be a cheapskate get the eya's

Well, sort of, the "E" is the plugs reach (3/4" or 19 MM), the "S" is a standard center electrode, 2,5 MM electrode, the "Y" is a V- groove center electrode, 2.5 MM insulator, The "A" means special design. Spark plugs have no spark or heat of their own. Spark is determined by your ignition system type, and a plugs heat range is measured in the plugs ability to dissapate heat, not accumulate it.

well said, i had to go look it up shortly thereafter. as said before, br9es will get you home. br9eya is the one to go with, shell out the extra buck and get the right stuff
