Not sure what you are trying to convey with your posting. Are you glad to have only paid $2.00 for a spark plug or are you trying to let us know you went through the trouble to change out your plugs and what you replaced the old ones with may not be any better than what just came out? Try doing a search on the topic of spark plugs here and then let us know what you are thinking with the $2.00 plugs. Are they any bargin after gaining a little insight that was available before hand? Quality and price go in different directions at times.

I'll just add to explain my other post that I once tried Autolite plugs and they didn't work very well. My guess at the time was contrary to the fitmit chart, the were not the correct heat range. I replaced them with the OEM NGK's and all was well again.
Bought a lawnmower off someone who "just put in" a new spark plug (an Autolite)...the thing always took four or five pulls to start. Replaced the plug with a NGK at the end of summer....it starts on the first pull now.

So, not saying they are bad plugs, just that my experience with them has not been good....

And as many here will tell you, the NGK Iridium plugs are highly recommended for this bike.

That is what a short search would have shown if originally done before buying $2.00 plugs but maybe some people prefer starting problems or the excitement of now knowing if the bike will even start when away from home. Similar situations happen with a low priced battery. Never quite sure when the end is coming. Exciting but not fun.
