Take one of your spark plugs up to Discount Auto or Autozone, or your nearest auto parts store, and they'll cross-reference it. Bought the spark plugs for mine, and spent a lil over $4.

i would run NGK and use the stock ones. But i think i heard that you can also use the k model ex: cr9ek and that they work pretty well they are dual prong, i will probably try them when i finish of my pack.

i found a deal on the net for ngk plugs and bosch plugs too, along with wire sets, you gotta buy a box of 10 but they are hella cheaper, the stealership charges like 6.50 and i think mine came out to 2 somthing a plug in the box of ten.

although then your stuck with 2 extra, so you can by another box or just buy two at the dealer.

www.clubplug.net check out for good prices.

CR9EK if you live in the cold.. If you live in the heat (90* in the summer) run the CR10EK. Keep in mind that the 10 will foul faster if your jetting is off..

If you are fouling plug fast you might want to look for a problem someplace.. Jetting to rich, bad spark.. So on and so on..

I pay about 20 bucks a set from my dealer for the CR10EKs...

it sounds like you need to rejet your bike before you put in new spark plugs. I never have changed my plugs. No fowling either. Your bike sounds like it is running rich, lean it out and get some more HP out of that thing. Then you will have to chang tires every 2000 miles. HEHE

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Drizzt knows whats up. go with ngk, i run stock (CR9E i THINK?) and my bike runs great... cost me less than $4/plug at the suzuki dealership here... cant go wrong with that.

just remember that the biggest thing with plugs working good and not working good is, how well they are gapped. if a plug is not gapped to spec, then it isn't going to provide an optimal spark for your engine.
