Plug gap range - 1980 GL1100

Postby Wingsconsin » Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:38 am



The prescribed range is .024 to .028 according to the information I have found.
I purchased new plugs NGK D8EA and will install them Saturday.
While I am doing this I wondered about the gap range...?
Is it better to be close to .024 or close to .028 ..?
Does it make a difference... :?

.028 is where I et them, 'cause it will give a little hotter spark than .024 and less likely to foul.

But I am sure there will be those with another opinion.
