Spark plugs
« on: 03 May 2019, 05:13:16 PM »
I'm going to change my plugs soon as they've done 45k and I'm doing a lot of touring this year so thought it would be best to change them whilst doing a service. My worry is counterfeit plugs. I've seen some Iridium one for under £30 and the same in the mid £50's. Do I buy the dear one and expect them to be kosher or risk the cheaper ones?

Buy them from your local dealer to be more certain of getting the real thing.

What plugs were you buying from Euro Car Parts because i've always found them very limited.
If i put my bike number plate in their search engine box all i get is one type of out of stock Denso plug.

We have an account with them at work, but i've never used them yet as i've never seen what i wanted on their website.
I'll bear that in mind, although i've not long fitted new Iridiums so it won't be them i'm after for a very long time.
