NGK Iridium Plug - BKR6EIX-11 (Gap .043")
Heres what I use . These are a step up from stock plugs which are basically great plugs for an 1800. The thing I like about the Iridium is theyre easier on the coils and they go longer between changes. I know a lot of guys go "you dont need to change plugs at 16000,you can go 2 or 3 times that mileage." But think of the pull it puts on your coils and system with worn plugs. I get mine with a 20% coupon at Advance auto by signing up online with them. And the upside is you might even get an extra mile or 2 per gallon if your lucky.

Ditto - I like these iridiums in my GL1800. In fact, I changed to them with only 5K miles on the bike.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
