    Just wanted to see what our diverse group of folks are using.



    What group do you fall into ?



    We have The Stock Spark Plug Users



    NGK DR8EA



    Champion RA6HC



    AC Delco S102F (Double Check)



    Autolite 2796 (Double Check)







    The Iridium Plug Users ( lots of folk report easier starting)



    Denso IX24 &
    IXU01-24



    NGK DR8EIX & DR8EVX (correct me if I'm wrong)






    Other Plug Types

    Pulstar

    71-aDhYvKFL._SL1500_.jpg





    Brisk Performance Spark Plugs #1886yBR12ZC1886yz (Sold @ amazon.com)



    Over on the Yamaha R1 forum they report that these plugs make their pipes run a lot hotter.. It was a tossup with people liking and dis-liking them











    The E3 Spark Plug Users #E3.36 Link To Old Thread





    I've heard that this plug runs hot for some. Others say the huge tip acts like a glow plug and caused detonation. And just a couple of others that had the tips break off and or melt.









    I use them in my RV90 and all my two stoke equipment and am really pleased with them. I don't use them in the TW since they take a different size socket and I don't want to have to pack two spark plug wrenches.











    The Spark Enhancers



    IKAT Spark Enhancer Is now Booster Motorsports AKA ibooster

    18123.jpg





    Pulstar DirectHits "ultra High-Power spark amplifier"

    dh_2L.jpg

    (Must be used with a non resistor plug like E3.36 Or NGK D8EA)



    Product Claims

    • Greater engine torque up to 9%
    • Greater horsepower up to 7%
    • Quicker throttle response
    • Better fuel economy up to 10%
    • Lower emissions across the board reductions
    • Smoother operation
    • Enhanced driving experience
    • Easier starting






    Some folks have taken out the tiny resistor in the spark plug cap and replaced it with a bit of copper, brass or stainless.

    Disclaimer::: Cross reference is provided as a convenience only. Due to differences in design and material, plugs produced by various manufacturers may not have exactly the same heat range nor firing point configuration. I recommend use of manufacturer search for a specific plug application before you buy.

    Poll doesn't work for me. 3rd question needs "To each his own." option.



    Champion Powersports plug from Walmart. No enhancers. To each his own (waste of money).

    Same plug in mine, haven't changed it. I've done less than a 1000 miles this past year with all my neck issues (bulging disc).

    I pulled it recently and it looked fine. A little on the dark side, but it came off easy with a brass brush.

    I followed Babaganosh's lead when he presented the Ikat/Directhit. I put the Ikat on my Baja Bug and cold start issues with my choke-less duel ICT's went from annoying to a non-issue. Not only did the engine start instantly. Should I be so inclined, I could get that little 4 cylinder to idle smoothly down to 500 rpm and it would transition without hesitation. A hardy thumbs-up on this product.



    Got the Direct-Hits for the TW. As my bike was pretty new every thing seemed ok. Like many of us I was a bit annoyed with the need to choke and warm-up when things got chilly. The Direct Hits seemed to help with this in the beginning. Now I am not sure it does anything, but then my bike has been modded so much it is hard to say what if anything is working less than 100%.

    Take care my Friend.........
