Spark plug issues

So I just went ahead and ordered new NGK iridium spark plugs but upon install they did not fit. They will screw in and everything and gapped properly but the end doesn't have the screw piece to adapt to the stock plugs. Any ideas? Just to be sure I specified the issue, the connection to the plug and wire is not the same.

Don't worry!!, It's just a bump in the road.

you have to unscrew the tips of the plugs to get the boots on

From the NGK website, it says the standard plug is part number DP7EA-9, stock number 5629, gap of 0.035. Nothing was listed for the Iridium.

Nevermind, I read on another post that some of the websites aren't correct since the VN750 is out of production. My 750 can be a little hard starting, I'm hoping the new plugs will do the trick.

FYI, Amazon has the DPR7EIX9 4 pack for $28.65 with free shipping.
