For most riders the standard (hotter CR8EH-9) spark plug is the best choice. Most cycles are set up for sea level running and on the rich side for longevity of the motor. As you move higher in elevation the thinner air makes the cycle run even richer. Vacuum carburetors and EFI systems on Honda's compensate for most of this , but a colder plug can be progressively more prone to fouling under these conditions. If warm temperature, long distance, and high speed running (combined) is your style of riding, then the colder plug (CR9EH-9) is probably a good choice for you. I do a lot of long distance riding in the heat of summer and have never felt the need of the cooler plug. I do recommend that you carry a second set of plugs in either case, just in case you foul a spark plug (I carry my old plugs that still work). The plugs you use may not be readily available unless the rare fouling of a plug just happens to be next to a Honda dealer. There is a relationship between temperature and plug heat range. If you had a sidecar and liked to drive around in 30 degrees F you might find the cycle started better with a CR7EH-9 (At 100 degrees F you would probably melt a hole in your piston with the CR7EH-9 installed).

What is the best spark plug for Toyota Opa 1800cc?

Japanese made vehicles tend to use Nippon-Denso or NGK spark plugs and other equipment.

Original equipment is usually the best choice.

I remember research by a spark plug company that claimed most engines suffer from a small percentage of partial combustions or nearly misfires. They claimed the right spark plugs could reduce the number of partial combustions so the engine produces more of the power or economy it is capable of.
That company, Splitfire, was exploiting a variation of a tweak that has been common knowledge to many engineers since the year dot.

NGK have been long reckoned to be the best and a few years ago a guy tested his car on a dyno and then retested after fitting NGK plugs and wires. He did record a small power increase.

I have a polaris ranger 6x6 500cc the plug in it now is a ngk bkr5e 7938. a friend gave me 2 unused ngk b7e s plugs and said that they wood run fine. Are these 2 ngk b7e s ok or what?

The figure 7 represents the heat range of the plug. Usually it is unwise to deviate from specifications unless problems force choosing a different heat range. If the spark plug regularly fouls then a hotter spark plug could improve the problem - with NGK that would mean moving from 5 to 4.

Any move must be made with care to avoid the engine damage possible if the spark plug is too hot.

Hot and cold plugs, incidentally, indicate the amount of heat the spark plug dissipates from the centre to the body and doesn't affect the temperature of the engine. Broadly cool running engines need hot spark plugs and hot running engines need cold plugs so in each case the spark plug nose will achieve the self-cleaning temperature without becoming too heated.

Moving from a 5 heat range to a 7 (NGK) is moving to a colder plug so yes it will run fine, at least for a while, though you could find plug fouling might be a problem...

What are the best sparkplugs to use in a2001 dyna lowrider

The choice of spark plugs is a personal preference type of thing. I like NGK spark plugs because of the consistant high quality of the spark plugs. I've never had a problem with NGK, others I have.

Good Luck

Spark plug gap ?

Well Buddy, this is what the book calls for:

Standard NGK PFR5G-11 Hot NGK PFR4G-11 Cold NGK PFR6G-11 Spark Plug Air Gap 0.039 - 0.043 in Spark Plug Torque 14 - 22
Spark Plug Type Spark Plug P/N Standard NGK PFR5G-11 Hot NGK PFR4G-11 Cold NGK PFR6G-11 Spark Plug Air Gap 0.039 - 0.043 in Spark Plug Torque For all plugs (normal; NGK PFR5G-11, Hot; NGK PFR4G-11, and Cold; NGK PFR6G-11) the air gap on these plugs range from 0.039 - 0.043 in. This is a "5 thousandths" variation, and won't effect noticibly, the performance if you go with a "happy-medium" of 0.041 in

Also note that the foot pounds of torque are:14 - 22
