Has anybody tried the new E3 spark plugs in a Gl1000? Do you recommend them?
Thanks.

I have been told they are not a good choice, they block the spark and shroud localized fuel flow.

Randell Washington has a good write up here; http://www.randakks.com/TechTip10.htm

I do not see any reference to the E3's on Randakk's site. I was wondering specifically about the E3's.

Sorry - I should have been more clear as Randakk's tech article is not about the brand of plugs but more about the type. Over at NGW Club there is a thread and the consensum is do not bother with multi prong plugs. Iridium is ok, but not E3.

I am still wondering about the E-3's. I do not want to apply an assessment of a different plug to the E-3's. I specifically would like to hear from somebody who knows about the E-3's.
Thanks.
