2009 Grizzly 700 spark plug problem?

I only have 216 miles on my 09 700 and it would not start the other day. I checked everything and found the plug was not sparking, i swaped plugs and it works fine now. My question is what should I be looking for as far as a reason why i would foul a plug at only 216 miles? Thanks

    to the best of my knowledge, you're either getting too much air or too much fuel and it appears  that you don't have any mods done to affect either.  If I were you, I ask one of the factory techs.

    Short trips on any EFI will foul the sparkplug.  They really need to be riden for aleast 3 to 5 miles (or 20 to 30 mins).  This will ensure that the motor is up to operating temp and put back a charge in the battery from starting. 
    Also make sure that you get the correct sparkplug, the 07 an 08 have a short plug 09 10 have a long spark plug.
