Spark Plug for Optimum Performance ??

Hi guys,

Im just wondering if there is a specific spark plug for MV bikes or majority just use any spark plug that works fine with the bike.

If there is a specific one, which is the best ?

Common in the market are the Iradium series from Ngk or Denso.

NGK CR9eix Iridium, Iridiums give higher performance bit do have a shorter life when compared to a double platium plug. Andrea Goggi said not to use the Denso, the combustion chamber does not suit them apparantly

Interesting. I've been using Denso U24ETR for about 10,000km.
Dyno says 120 odd Hp.
Brain says 4 gear wheelstands.

A lot of the Italian lads are also using Denso with good results, I'm only repeating what Andrea Goggi said here

I'm listening to him and I'm happy with the NGK CR9EIX.

Just as an aside too chaps, and not trying to go too far off the track here, but Iridium plugs weren't originally designed to produce "bulk easy horsepower" they were developed to last 100,000+ miles for U.S. E.P.A. requirements.

Usually the E.P.A. and the tuner are somewhat at a difference of opinion.
