Only a handful will work with the motorcycle engine you own. Also different brands (NGK, Bosch, DENSO, Champion, Esc) will work better on different types of engines. As a general rule of thumb, use the sparkplug your manufacturer recommends for your motorcycle (same brand and part number). Unfortunately some spark plugs are very specific to a type of engine and make only for that engine such as the NGK ME8 for $34 per sparkplug, compared to the normal price of $3 per sparkplug.

I happen to have my XZ550 Vision owners manual right here! Yamaha recommends ,either the NGK D8EA or the Nippondenso X34ES-U
I've used the Densos for about 7 years and like them . The NGK's are fine too. I bought a box (12) of the Denso's on eBay a while back .
