You could clean and gap it, but why? For $1.29 screw a new one in. Looks great though.

Fleet Farm, Tractor Supply, probably AutoZone/O'Rieley/etc. It's not a special "iridium tipped" plug, just a standard spark plug.

Shoulders are worn and rounded on the center electrode - not square & sharp as is found on a new plug.
Scooter runs, though - so no need to change.
Use the same maint. practices on the engine oil. Keep the orig. oil topped up, never change it, and she'll likely run longer than you will own it. My 18 yr old Sear's mower outlasted me this way.

Speaking of lawn mowers, I am glad that Honda thought enough about changing oil on the PCX that they actually put a bottom drain plug in. On my Honda lawn mower they have a recommended schedule for changing the oil, but they don't provide a drain hole in order to drain It! That means that I have to turn the lawn mower upside down to drain the oil. Boo....

My Honda mower (lightweight model) is over 16 years old and has had the oil changed about three times in it's life. No blue smoke, still starts second pull and never lets me (or my wife) down. :) :)

Actually my wife has graduated to a Ryobi 36v battery mower, it's amazingly good on flat ground, but the Honda is best for all round cutting.

I have a Honda mower as well. No drain plug! That's where the vacuum/suction pump works well. No dumping the mower over and letting the oil run everywhere. It's a much tidier method.

My son must have a different model, his is not located on the lower side of the engine where mots are, rather underneath where the blade is ... it gets covered with a layer of grass & stuff, but that's where his is.

Red Green had an F-150 that had a seized drain plug....so he had to do the same as with your mower.
No, he's not stupid. He didn't turn the truck over - instead he pried the engine out, with some difficulty - not having any tools save for a spud bar and a sledge. Poured the oil into a bucket, to use in his wife's car.
A fellow just needs to think things through....
