Thumbs up changed plugs...not surprised

Weather finally broke in Chicago so I did a quick plug change.
Not surprised to see the ones that came out had a .050 gap.
Went with champion coppers. Gapped at .040
the car used to break up a bit at WOT before and now it runs like a champ. I'm even seeing a clean steady 11psi. Before it was 9-10-ish.
I assume the spark had too much of a distance to travel at .050.

Best $8 mod ever lol. Just thought I'd share my great Saturday experience!

Quick plug change, then back to the bike?

Congrats on the upgrade, but, you're going to get inundated with the following question, so let me be the first to officially ask:

How did the plug wires look? They should be replaced with the plugs if they were "OEM or just old".

You're going to get recomendations of brands like MSD, Crane Firewires, etc., etc. There are many differant favorites being touted about. Even Chrysler makes a "HI-PO" version of our stock wires.

Man I wish Rob! The Ninja engine is sitting in my basement waiting for some tooling and parts for transmission. The road glide(2013) is just too new to take it out on these salty roads. You know....the whole chrome thing. Waiting for a good rain...but I did manage to get out in the Trans Am on Sunday.

Jerry I knew that was coming! I got the plugs from napa and they didn't carry any aftermarket wires.
I have some MSD's on order. The existing ones look great. Fresh white lettering but because they are the OEM 7mm they're coming out in a few days.

Good man! I figured you had it covered.
