Anybody use the iridium plugs in their Tard? I am gonna replace mine and noticed there was an iridium version as well. Just curious if anybody has tried them.
I did google that's how I came up with there being an Iridium option. SorryUse the search function, or google it. Anyways, here is what I found and I just so happened to order 4 of those last night on the motorcycle superstore link. The NGK Canadian link in the discussion below don't sell them for whatever reason, so you have to find a different vender.

It was just a curiosity thing really....I know plugs don't really come into play much until you get into high hp applications where gap has to be spot on and you need a pretty cold plug. Spart plugs for my truch were $12 each so $96 for plugs once a year That's the price you pay to run boostRegular version is dirt cheap, $3,50 a pop I believe, which is the cheapest I've ever seen for a spark plug. For those prices I wouldn't consider iridium. Iridium plugs are made to last long, they will however cost substantially more. If it's performance you're after, then it won't gain you anything.
796 has only 2. 1100 has 4, 2 of which are on the belt sideGot my 4 spark plugs in from motorcycle-superstore. I've been searching, but couldn't find any how-to switch spark plugs on a hypermotard. I saw the 2 spark plugs on the right hand side which are simple to get to, but there are 2 more correct ? If anyone can shoot me some good info on swapping out the spark plugs it'd be much appreciated.
Gracias and enjoy your Cinco De Mayo, I'm holding off on my maintenance until next Saturday and am going to start on margaritas, cervezas, and beach.
only pre-evo model has 4 plugs. The evo models only need 2.from what i discovered the older hypers had 4 plugs.. i couldn't find 4 plugs on the bike itself nor on the interwebz for the later model bikes
