    Again, facing the challenge of having limited access to parts on island. Getting close to 7,000 miles (in 10 month) on my 2010 Tdub and should change the spark plug. The local shop does not have the recommended spark plug but sold me a substitute, a "Champion Copper Plus" 809 RA6HC. Any advise if I can use this instead of the NGK or DENSO?

    That Champion number does cross with the stocker on most crossreferences.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    DON'T USE CHAMPION!!!!



    I have never had anything but BAD luck with Champion. If you can't get an NGK, go with an E8 or even an Autolite.

    Hmmm? Tdub likes her Champion Motosports plug from Walmart. She has 42,000 miles on hers.

    Your mileage may vary.

    "I" have had nothing but grief with Champion plugs.

    Try Denso...spelling may be off.You'll see a mixture of NGK and Denso plugs in Japaneese vehicles.

    resistance values can be different with each plug manafacturer. the bike you tried champion in may have been setup for something completely different. i have had nissan trucks that loved nd but hated champion. my lawnmowers however use champion and they run great.
    not a TW owner but i play one on this forum.

    I just order NGK's from Amazon - how lazy am I?



    I live/work/commute in San Francisco. It seems there is a certain urban element that uses porcelain for cooking (rocks). Every six months or so I'll walk up to the parked bike and have a no-start condition. A quick plug check shows the porcelain top is broken off. I keep a spare in the toolkit and another in my riding bag. Those iridium/platinum's would add up fast.
