Anyone tried E3 diamond plugs?..

I am in the market for some new plugs and have not read any reviews of E3 Diamond Fire spark plugs or how they compare to NGK's CR9EK's. Has anyone tried the E3's or do you have any knowledge about the comparison? Doing some regular maintenance this weekend and wouldn't mind trying something new.

I saw that too. I was impressed. If you look at it as a percentage it wont matter much on a bike.

Thanks Camaro, that IS what I am doing. I have read many reviews unrelated to motorcycles and have found hits and misses. Thank you for you informative input and council that could also relate to the NGK CR9EK's as they are dual electrode plugs as well. Perhaps I will just stick with what works from the factory, or have there been improvements since 2002?! It's hard to tell sometimes and I certainly don't want to damage my engine by having the wrong spark plug.

I can understand that AND I know that the standard plug is an Iridium plug which I LOVE! With the info that I've been given from not only MH nuts but tested and tried racers I won't deviate from what is called for in my manual. This whole thread was started to ask if anyone has had ANY experience with this new dual electrode plug. So far I have had no responses with the question at hand. It's almost like the whole Nology plug system all over again, only without the info.

i havent had personal experience with them due to the fact that i wouldnt "try" out a new design plug in anything i own, especially after doing research and finding too many mixed reviews and plenty of bad things from them. and who knows, u could get a set of them and they work great for you. and then i or the next person could get a set and it fall apart in the motor and grenade it.... with a new product like that i wouldnt take the chance. just my 2cents. i would deff check with patrick though as to what he recomends for your bike, sometimes what the mf recomends isnt always the best after testing and all.

Here's a better question, are you worried about burning a hole in your piston with an E3 or that the electrode will fall apart and the motor won't run right because of it. I'm just asking because I'm going for OE anyway but what is your 2 cents if you have it (other than hear say or ridiculous banter) I personally don't believe a spark plug can mess up your engine unless you have no Idea what you are putting in, if it's the wrong thing you can fix it unless you keep doing the wrong thing!

if the plug falls apart or even if just the electroid falls off you WILL do damage to the piston or valves or chamber(head) or linnings, or all of them. its a piece of metal bouncing around inside, picture a screw or nut bouncing around in their, you will do damage and fast.


yes those are extrems if it falls apart or electroid falls off but there have been plenty of reportings of the electroid falling off.

it might end up being an awesome plug aventually i think they need to perfect it though and have more backing to them before i or others would trust it in anything worked hard for.

Figured I might as well do a follow up on this. Went with the OE CR9E's and when I pulled the old ones out the gap was at .032! looks like they call for a .026 - .028. I think I should get some better fuel economy and performance!

Thats because Bosch platinum plus 4,s are complete garbage, they missfire in every application I put them in, If I have a car come in the shop that just had a tune up the first thing I do is pull a plug if it has Bosch they will go in the garbage before I do anything else, I suggest stick with NGK U cant beat them
