R1DER Posted November 8, 2009 Report Share Posted November 8, 2009 I have now officially scoured the site and found several product brands recommended, but no one even mentions a preferred brand of spark plug. I bought an NGK for my lawn mower, and can't imagine that cheap of a plug for my new (to me) R1. I've contacted both Bosch and Splitfire, and both told me to go elsewhere, their plugs burn too hot and will "Blow up your bike". I find this hard to believe since sportbikes have such high-performance engines, and I distinctly remember Splitfire sponsoring a Kawasaki racing team. This is my first winter with a bike in over 15 years, and I want to do everything right; so spark plugs are a pretty important piece of the winterization process. What brand does CSS endorse (no offense if its NGK)? If it is NGK, is there a premium version or model that is recommended? And lastly, am I over-thinking this whole topic? Are they so simple that any type/brand will do? By the way, my R1 is a 2000 with 8000 miles on it and has been meticulously cared for by the original owner (a good friend of mine).
