Smile side mounted plug's,

I like the side mounted plug's in the cylinder's,
from the 1st time i saw a 750 vulcan a few Yrs a go?
I noticed the area where the plugs were ,
on the side of the cylinder;s and not in the top, or top angled sides,
i thought that kawasaki did something neat and different this time, and it was a good idea from the git go,
I like the water cooloing, and dual cam's in each head and four valves too,
kawqsaki does alot of things that others wont try and thery always turn out interesting,

The Honda Shadow C2 750 also has 2 plugs per cylinder and at least one set is side mounted. The other is top mounted.

I had always thought that 1 plug did as well as 2 per Cyl., till I accidently left the plug wire off, 1 on each Cyl., I guess I was under the belief that if it fired it fired...lol...
I noticed a loss of power and a bit of roughness as I was going up a slight mountain grade, and when we stopped for a break on top I spotted the 2 loose wires and put them back on and all was well & smooth...lol...
I now know it do make a difference...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
