Best Spark Plugs

So I am currently in process of making my bike run as clean as possible, fluid changes, new air filters etc. I would now like to buy new spark plugs for my bike 93' 750. Does anyone have any recommendations. Will I be able to feel the difference. Is there any sort of high performance plugs availible. Thanks for the feedback.

Umm, did anyone mention the Iridium plugs yet??!! LOL.

I'm getting close to plug changing time and plan on using them too.

There is a post in the Vulcan Verses HERE about them (as well as part#'s and info on wires too).

Iridiums for me too! I installed them and was amazed at the ease of starting. That has to translate to better/cleaner running as well. The plugs are supposed to last longer tool- just be sure to use anti-seize on the threads!

You'd think that some one would tell you about the NGK Iridiums....

Easier starts and smoother running. I think that my RPM's at idle went up by about 50 RPM... and off chock in AM alot sooner than with standard plugs.

My three best for picks for maintenance, Yusua MF battery, Rottella 5 - 40 Synth oil and NGK Iridiums... Great combo!!

I believe that the gap is the same as the standard plug.. at least I believe that is what I gapped them to. Just do it carefully.... very thin electrode, you'll see when you look at them.
