spark plug question

my plugs fouled out the other day on my 05. i called every where to find spark plugs everyone said they couldn't get em. conviently the honda dealership in my area is closed till the second of jan. so i started calling out of town dealerships. after a **** load of calling i finally found a dealership that had them about 2 hours away which sucked. got the plugs but the charged an ass load over 100 dollars. i know all other spark plugs cost around 15-20 a set. what is up with these plugs man or did i just get hosed? there is no way the plugs are that much better. what are your thoughts on this?

Don't worry Ceph. I didn't catch that until it was pointed out. Mind you I just woke up and I am waiting for my coffee to brew. ;p

argh! those dealers charge you murderously for a set of iridium plugs! we only carry Denso sparkplugs & we sell iridium plugs for the CBR600RR at US$12 (IUH27). if you're out for a new set of plugs try a set from Denso they are much better than NGK.

I just had the same problem. Only 1800mi on the bike, but it was my g/f fault for starting the bike up in the cold and then shuting it right off without giving it the chance to warm up at all. I just took mine out and cleaned them with a fine wire brush, put em back in and no problems. The process was just a pain in the ass though.

the only problem i had was trying to get the damn radiator back on the top bracket that you have to slide on before you can bolt it up was a pain... but then again it was a first for me...

as far as i know... the S on the end only means that it the stock Honda OEM part, which means it's gonna cost more. there shouldn't be any difference between the plugs other than tha one letter on the part number.

yes, the radiator is a biatch.
