Are These the Correct Plugs?

Post by Ray&Paula »



Hi,
I'm about to change my spark plugs in my 2004 GL1800 Goldwing. The spark plugs that are currently installed are NGK BKR6E-11. I just received a new set that are NGK BKR5E-11. I've seen both throughout the web under Honda GL1800 Goldwing O.E.M. parts. Anyone know what the difference is between these two? I'd appreciate any input that you may have. Thank you, Ray

The 6 is standard. The 5 is the cold plug below 5c or 41f. Also a seven for extended high speed.

Thanks for the input...... Now I'm really confused. I read the opposite on another forum.

The info came from the owners manual for your wing that I downloaded from manualslib.com. I will recheck the info.

Your correct, the 6 is the one to use.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

As usual I am late to the party. But, here is a snippet from the owner's manual of a 2003 GL1800:
