Spark Plugs

Ok so its time to change my spark plugs(7500 miles). My bike takes NGK CR9EK. Evey place around here sells them for $10 each. Does any place online have them cheaper?

Yes...but shipping is gonna get you to about the same price. Just buy them local. I pay 10 for each as well.

I thought $8 each was a lot for my dirt bike plugs and that only needed one. Oh well, gotta pay to play.

I guess if you were gonna order some other stuff getting them online would be cheaper....gotta do something to offset that shipping.

At 7500 miles I dont need anything else. I just did an oil change. I could use some Pazzo's though.

buy **** like that local keep the shops open, if we take too much business online, steal/repair places hurt and some are forced to close

I run NGK CR9E, I'm not sure what the K is for or how it differs but I buy my plugs at Advance Auto Parts locally and they are less than $4 per plug. I think Auto Zone sells them too.

Ok I just did a little research and found that the K stands for 2 ground electrodes. and I also found this nice little chart explaining NGK Plug coding system and thought I would share it.

http://www.ngk.com/sparkplug411.asp?kw=Iridium&mfid=1

its the very last link in the yellow box on the left. I'm not very good at this linking stuff maybe someone else can help.

Joe from your user name I take it you have a mitsubishi eclipse gsx awd turbo with the 4g63 motor? Those cars are great... you can really build the chit out of them... I've seen one run 7's in the quarter mile!

That car could spin all four tires in third gear at 70mph! And they were still running the stock tranny... although they were using one tranny for every drag run

Good Call on the name... I had a 98 GSX....I got tired of breaking soooo much stuff!!! The drivetrain is actually quite weak...I chased the problem all around the car...Started with the clutch then Trans, transfer case, rear diff...Finally I replased the clutch with a weaker one. an upgrade from stock but not extreme at all and it never broke anything again...always make the weak link something that is easily and cheap to replace!!! I finally learned that $4,000 in the hole...lol

I raced alot of autocross with the SCCA in their solo 2 events and did the ocasional drag. It was about a mid 11 sec car at the end of its life with me. I had a more of a love for going thru turns fast. any a$$ can go straight at my level...I did love roasting all 4 tires going through an intersection racing a V8 anything and never looking back. at least I could take most lightly modified V8's in this town. It was one of the most fun cars I ever have drove!! I loved it in the snow...we actually had a SCCA event in 3 inches of snow now that was a blast!!!
