EN 500 spark plugs

Hi,

I'm a very happy VN750 owner. My girlfriend has a Kawasaki EN 500. I was wondering: can I use the same iridium spark plugs for her bike that I used for my VN750? Can someone point me to a webshop that ships to The Netherlands and the product page? Thanks!

The en500 uses a different plug DR9EIX stock #4772. I found a link on Ebay.co.uk that has four and will ship to the Netherlands and also EBAY. NL I also have a link for NGK in the Netherlands they should be able to tell you where to buy localy.

It only took a few minutes, I got to give Google most of the credit.

Thanks for the info! What is the difference between the spark plugs for the VN750 and the EN500? I read about the gap. Does the EN500 engine only work with the DR9EIX spark plugs?

The Spark Plugs of the VN 750 are hotter.

You will want to use Factory suggested size and temp. plugs only.

I inserted the iridium sparkplugs for my VN750 out of the box (without looking at the gap). The engine runs fine. Can I do this also with the spark plugs for the EN500?
