Question NGK Plugs

A friend sent me a set of NGK plugs he bought for his RT. They are DCPR8EIX. Will they fit my LT?..................

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

Re: NGK Plugs

They will fit, but are of a colder heat rating than normally used and recommended by NGK for the LT. Even though being iridium plugs, being "colder" than required means it may suffer from deposit buildup and eventual misfire. If your riding style is spirited and the engine is not consuming oil, they may work well enough.

Re: NGK Plugs

For the price of plugs is it worth it not using the recommended ones???
