SPARK PLUGS • • • AGAIN
I am not a fan of the stock plug by any means, even though gasoline has changed over the years, I think Honda knows something when they recommend changing the plugs every 4000 miles... yes, unless it is a misprint Smile

After one year in the engine I do notice a definite mis-firing on start up with the recommended NGK plug.

I do get excellent mileage on my bike compared to some others.

I havnt tried using iridium plugs..... yet.

The article is about really high performance engines so it might or might not be relevant in the plodding 1200 engine... I did say MIGHT or MIGHT NOT

When I am on the bike I am not riding like I am first out of the gate.

Will the price of the plug give me enough in fuel economy to justify the extra cost?

Remember I am in Canada where we get reamed for costs of shipping etc etc and by the local auto parts stores, prices at NAPA in Canada are almost 20-50% higher than in the US etc. eg $8.50 for a fuel filter compared to $3.50 in the US.

Probably the same will apply to iridium plugs no doubt Smile
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
