Just wanted to see what our diverse group of folks are using.



What group do you fall into ?



We have The Stock Spark Plug Users




NGK DR8EA



Champion RA6HC



AC Delco S102F (Double Check)



Autolite 2796 (Double Check)







The Iridium Plug Users
( lots of folk report easier starting)



Denso IX24 &
IXU01-24



NGK DR8EIX & DR8EVX (correct me if I'm wrong)






Other Plug Types

Pulstar

Brisk Performance Spark Plugs #1886yBR12ZC1886yz (Sold @ amazon.com)



Over on the Yamaha R1 forum they report that these plugs make their pipes run a lot hotter.. It was a tossup with people liking and dis-liking them











The E3 Spark Plug Users #E3.36 Link To Old Thread





I've heard that this plug runs hot for some. Others say the huge tip acts like a glow plug and caused detonation. And just a couple of others that had the tips break off and or melt.









I use them in my RV90 and all my two stoke equipment and am really pleased with them. I don't use them in the TW since they take a different size socket and I don't want to have to pack two spark plug wrenches.











The Spark Enhancers




IKAT Spark Enhancer Is now Booster Motorsports AKA ibooster

Pulstar DirectHits "ultra High-Power spark amplifier"

(Must be used with a non resistor plug like E3.36 Or NGK D8EA)



Product Claims

  • Greater engine torque up to 9%
  • Greater horsepower up to 7%
  • Quicker throttle response
  • Better fuel economy up to 10%
  • Lower emissions across the board reductions
  • Smoother operation
  • Enhanced driving experience
  • Easier starting




Some folks have taken out the tiny resistor in the spark plug cap and replaced it with a bit of copper, brass or stainless.

Poll doesn't work for me. 3rd question needs "To each his own." option.



Champion Powersports plug from Walmart. No enhancers. To each his own (waste of money).

Starts on 2nd or 3rd kick (if I remember to turn on the kill switch)

It's been almost a year since the last post. How about a bump?

Same plug in mine, haven't changed it. I've done less than a 1000 miles this past year with all my neck issues (bulging disc).

I pulled it recently and it looked fine. A little on the dark side, but it came off easy with a brass brush.

I followed Babaganosh's lead when he presented the Ikat/Directhit. I put the Ikat on my Baja Bug and cold start issues with my choke-less duel ICT's went from annoying to a non-issue. Not only did the engine start instantly. Should I be so inclined, I could get that little 4 cylinder to idle smoothly down to 500 rpm and it would transition without hesitation. A hardy thumbs-up on this product.



Got the Direct-Hits for the TW. As my bike was pretty new every thing seemed ok. Like many of us I was a bit annoyed with the need to choke and warm-up when things got chilly. The Direct Hits seemed to help with this in the beginning. Now I am not sure it does anything, but then my bike has been modded so much it is hard to say what if anything is working less than 100%.

I think I fall into this category as well, I run the stick NGK plug.

I have played with engines a lot over the years and in my experience on an otherwise stock motor trying to update the ignition never really helps, just lightens the wallet

I'm running this one: NGK DR8EIX Iridium spark plug from procycle, about 10 bucks.

Good info here, thank you. I got the plug because it was supposedly an improvement. I have no problems with the bike and it runs very very well. So, it might run even better with a NGK D8EA regular plug?? Comments anyone please?

NGK website says:
87-2000 NGK D8EA
2000-2010 NGK DR8EA

Mine is an 87.

I used to use those until I tried the other one. I have a couple around, might have to try the old style again to see if I can tell a difference.
