No difference that I could see performance wise, but they MAY last longer. Whether you break even on the cost vs. the money saved using the normal plug is something to be seen.
I say save your money.

I put them in my 1500 and am going to do the same in the 1800. Some improvement in fuel economy was noticed and the engine did run smoother I think. I have had good luck running the NGK ix9 series plugs in other bikes.

I have them in my bike. As stated above, not much difference in performance, or fuel economy, if any, but seem to be lasting very long. Was the price worth it? Only because I got them at just slightly more cost than stock plugs. I would not pay the normal asking price for them.
