680 Rincon- Spark Plug Foul Question

Hey guys. I have a 2009 Rincon 680. For some reason, I have had 2 fouled sparked plugs in the past few weeks. When I remove the spark plug, it smells strong of gas and is blackened.

I have been using the recommended NGK IFR5L11. A friend today suggested to use the Autolite XP 3924. They are $6 each and I can pick them up at Advance Auto instead of paying $15 for the NGK at the bike shop. I've done my research and it does show the NGK and Autolite being the same plug just sold much cheaper at a non-motorycle shop.

Any ideas on what may be causing the fouled plugs? I keep the Rincon in an enclosed trailer. I just wonder if because the lack of air flow, should I roll it outside before starting. Both times the plugs have fouled, it's been from starting inside my trailer. It starts fine, when I put it in reverse and give it gas, it dies. This is the beginning of the end for this plug.

Any ideas or suggestions???

Could be your gas is set to rich. I was told once you start the atv to keep it running for 15-20 min.
