Spark Plugs

I finally decided to change my spark plugs its recommended to change them every 8000...I finally change them at about 18000 and they look fine not great but not bad...i guess it time from the iridium plugs suppose to be better and last longer...It was interesting on how much i had to take off to get to them suckers...

change them every 10k miles, whether they look good or bad. you would be surprised how a "good" looking plug can go "bad" really quick. and do you really have 18k on your 08 r6?

If you guys are interested we carry Brisk.. They are very very good spark plugs. I was a hard core NGK fan for the longest time, but after spending 45minutes with a Brisk engineer and having him show me the differences in engineering and why ones actually better than the other, the brisk plugs are my new favorite. And I tune 3-5 cars a week and go through plugs like crazy so I have alot of experience with spark plugs lol..

I changed mine every 8K like the service manual said on my 07 and you could feel the difference after the new plugs were installed. You have to remember that plugs in a bike work 3 to 4 times harder than plugs in your car. They will wear out.
