I saw an old posting here the "How-to-Articles" about cutting the electrode arm even with the electrode, looks like a good idea.
Anyone know if this has any long term issues on the cylinder, piston and valves?

From what I have read on other sites concerning "side cutting" your plugs, there is no indication of these causing any kind of damage to the engine. So I did a set for my 99 1500 and a set for a 82 1100. I immediately noticed an improvement is starting (after sitting for the winter months was always extremely hard to get started in spring) with the side cut started within 5 seconds. They also cut down on the warm up time. hard to tell but the bike seems to respond quicker and with less hesitation on the quick accel. I can not really say I noticed any increase in MPG. I do not have enough mileage on them to be able to evaluate the life expectancy of these NGK plugs yet.
