Sparkplugs

What Patrick said, if is not called for your specific application, spend the extra money elsewhere.

Auto parts stores usually have the plugs you need at a cheaper price. When they put that word "Motorcycle" on it you tend to pay more. I get mine from O'Reilly's. I also think the Iridiums are not worth the extra money.

As a side note the spark plug requirement and gap is usually on the swingarm sticker.
