Have you ever been out on a ride, stopped to check your dirt bike, and noticed that your spark plug was wet?

A wet spark plug is a spark plug that has fuel or oil on the firing end or electrode. This can be caused by several different things.

One of the most common causes is an over-rich fuel mixture, which means there is too much fuel in the air/fuel mixture being delivered to the engine.

This excess fuel can then make its way into the cylinder and onto the spark plug, causing it to become wet.
