I had problems after the stage 3 jet kit, K&N, and full yoshi race exhaust were installed. I raised the question to the suzuki shop, when my plugs kept gett fauled out, they asked me what mods I have so I told him. He said Oh [email protected], I know what it is...you need to run a "hotter" plug. Its been almost 2 years since I have replaced those plugs but I still don't have ANY problems what so ever with them. I can't remember what the model was, but I know it is a NGK plug.

NGK is fine...if you are fouling plugs, you need to be tuned properly. Installing a hotter plug just masks the real problem.

Now, on my modded WRX I run one step colder plugs and I use the ND Irridiums...

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

I use the standard NGK plug that Honda recommends, but I use the non-resistor type (DP9EA-9 instead of DPR9EA-9). Non resistor plugs give a hotter, but shorter spark than standard resistor plug. I also took out the resistor in the spark plug wires.

All I know is the bike fires right up after 1 crank cold and 1/2 crank hot, after 2 years of the same NGK plug I don't know if there ever was a problem, but these NGK's are great.

NGK Iridium all the way!! I noticed a little difference with them. They fire like 30% more accurately than platinium.
