    If the plugs are the same as the RZR 900 (and you should verify that because I don't have access to a Ranger 900 parts manual yet), the OEM plug is a Champion RG4YCX. I don't like Champion plugs, so when I did my first service, I upgraded to the NGK Iridium CR9EIX.

    Should I just go ahead and Change out the plugs and save the champion as spares? Hopefully someone will chime in who is lucky enough to already have a 900.

    Chances are that you'll never have an issue with the Champion plugs. My dislike of them comes from racing 2-strokes years ago and nothing other than an NGK would last any length of time without fouling. I've just been an NGK kinda guy ever since

    Changing them definitely isn't going to HURT anything..........and if it were me, yes I would keep the Champions as the spares.

    Maybe somebody will chime in to confirm the plug number info'.

    It could have been something as simple as too much assembly lube left on the piston/cylinders during the assembly process. I'm guessing that the next set will not have that issue, but please keep us posted.

    On a separate but similar note........another member mentioned having his spark arrestor screen get stopped up on his XP4. So I checked mine and found the same after only about 30 hours of use. I cleaned it and felt a noticeable power increase afterward. I'm not sure if the Ranger 900 uses a similar screen, but it would be worth checking and keeping an eye on if it does. Again, I feel it could be contributed to some assembly lube getting spit out of the engine on it's first run, but that's purely speculation.

    I have always removed mine and trowed them on the self,and I allready took it out of the new ranger as well. I read on the rzr forum some where that it actuly gave the rzr like 1 horse power on the dino after removing it.Thats just what I read I dont know wheather it is true or not, but I just took them out any way, no one checks them in ky that Iam aware of.

    Based on Mike's post, the plugs are the same as detailed in my original response. I don't own stock in NGK, but without a doubt I would pick those plugs over OEM. JMO
