Spark plug recommendations - October 15, 2008, 02:29 PM

I'm in need of new plugs, well I think I am. I've never bought plugs for a bike before so I'm clueless as to which kind (brand) to go with. What do you use or prefer. Does it even matter? Are all plugs created equal? Thanks

look in ur manual first and see what the OEM is - best to go with that if you aren't changing ambient temps and stuff IE - moving to Mile High City or Arizona.

I haven't had any problems with NGK plugs....but have been looking into these E3 ones...they are kinda new...well to me atleast lol.

when u buy them, make sure they are gapped correctly (just cus they are gapped, doesn't mean they are gapped correctly) you can simply ask "hey foo, these come correctly gapped?" if not..again..refer to ur manual...if they aren't...a gapper tool is like $2

Are these for your 929? If so, get NGK CR9EH-9 which supersede the iridium plugs.

Yeah it's for the 929. Those are their standard plugs. Wouldn't the iridium be better?

The stock plugs are the Denso Iridium. The iridiums make less power and are 3 times the price, but last a little bit longer. The CR9EH-9 is the way to go fo shizzle. There isn't anything about the 929 and performance that I don't know. Trust me, they are the way to go.

I second the NGK CR9EH9 plugs. I've never had a problem. I usually pitch them after about 20k. I check them @ 10k though. @ 20k, they start showing some wear.
