Spark plugs

Does anyone have the part number to the iridium spark plugs that work so well on our bikes?

Yeah I looked in the versus but couldn't locate the part number for the plugs. Went to the store but the people working there couldn't tell me which ones that I needed (dumbasses).

The verses have the part numbers for the standard plugs, but not for the
NGK Iridium DPR7EIX-9 spark plugs that Chris correctly identified.

Yeah OlHoss, the iridium p/n's are in Verses.... check the link in my first post. If they weren't there already, they would need to be added. Regardless, I'm glad you know about the Verses master-paul. I noticed that you had just joined the forum and wanted to make sure you had seen them.

You are correct. I skimmed that link too fast and missed KM`s post with the p/n.

Iridium plugs


Quote:
The advantage is (they claim) "Longer life, lower fuel consumption,smoother running,Improved ignition efficaintcy-giving enhanced power and acceleration" The part that matters really is the "improved ignition efficaincy" as iridium can "spark hotter" at a lower voltage. Given our feeble electrical system, anything that uses less power is good. The part number is 7803 at Advanced Auto. The plug is the DPR7IX9. KM
CORRECTION TO KM`s part number- he missed the *E*- should be DPR7EIX-9.
