Spark plug question - March 16, 2013, 09:30 PM

I got NGK Iridium spark plugs and I noticed that the terminal ends are different from the ones I have in there now. So when I install the spark plug coils with the iridium plugs , they are not secure and can be easily removed, whereas with the old spark plugs, the coils fit in there securely since the terminals sort of screw into the coils. My question is, is it ok for the spark plug coils to be this lose where they can be easily lifted without any resistance? I know I have the correct plugs for my bike (06 zx6r) since I got them from the dealer and i checked the part number online as well. Below are pictures of the two plugs. Thanks!
