E3 Spark Plugs?
On my fairly recently acquired 1100 Classic, and having limited history available I've been going through doing maintenance and a part of that was to change the plugs. I decided to go with the E3.46 and I have to say it made a huge difference on cold starts and warms up much faster. Throttle response is a bit better also. Anyone else running these?

Can't say I have, I've been running the old NGKs in my 650... But I've often wondered how a modern plug would perform in our bikes.

I don't personally know anyone using them in a bike. The people that put them in an auto engine didn't see much difference if any. At least no one said things got worse...

Stick with NGK . Tried and proven. The E3 has proved to be "snake oil ".

Well, I just acquired a 2009 v star 650 classic. Previous owner obviously didnt know how to properly take care of this machine, so Ive started a little TLC. Just put these plugs in , and now I dont have to choke as long, and no misfire, or backfires, in essence, am getting the same results that you have already claimed, and then some. Lovin it!

put them in a while back, got the conversion and got ones marked for a car that were the same but since was car was quite a bit cheaper and got them at oreilly, noticed some improvement but old ones were proly from the factory.

RE: E3 Spark Plugs?
I'd love to put e3's in my 950 but I haven't been able to find out which would be the correct plugs foe my bike using the e3 crossover reference guide! I had a 2000 F-250 with the 5.4L triton and i know that those plugs woke that truck right up and was seeing HUGE gains for fuel economy. So if anyone knows which plugs I should use as e3's I'd appreciate the info!

RE: E3 Spark Plugs?
I used them in my car and it was just ok, no real difference. I would suspect the mixed reviews are coming from how bad the plugs that were pulled out were. Im glad to hear they worked well on your bike and I like them simply because you dont have to gap them.
