Re: How Many Spark Plugs Will I Need?

07's have dual spark plugs so you'll need 4.
But I'd just go to a local shop and buy 4 regular plugs, I dont see why you'd need the iridium versions.

Re: How Many Spark Plugs Will I Need?

The reason being is I just replaced my barends and I've noticed a large increase in vibration, my hands get numb really fast. So, I filled up my bars with butyl rubber and rubber covered metal, this decreased noise and vibration by about 50% of what it used to be, though it hasn't fully hardened yet and it doesn't feel as good as it used to feel. I read that I could get a much smoother ride by gapping my spark plugs, I'm not confident I could do this correctly so I was suggested those IX spark plugs for a similar effect, a smoother ride with less vibration.

Re: How Many Spark Plugs Will I Need?

Could the handlebars spread vibrations all over my bike? I'm feeling them where the foot rest is too. Especially when I take off fast, never used to do that before it's like everything is rumbling. I'm never touching stock barends again, **** it.

The secondary plug in the rear is wedged in between the frame and the head. It's definitely un-fun for big handed guys.

Overall (with the manual) it's a VERY easy process. Takes about half an hour or less. I was moving slowly and it took half and hour. With the older single spark motors, it's probably a 10 minute job.
