Could be. Have you pulled one from each cylinder to see what it looks like? Here's a chart http://www.dansmc.com/spark_plugs/sp...s_catalog.html The iridium plugs really help eliminate starting problems, assuming you don't have a carb or similar issue going on.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

VN700A speedo

I need a speedometer for a 1985 Vulcan VN700A. Kawasaki says discontinued and no luck with over a dozen different sites. Where can I find a replacement speedometer?
