Anyone know the diff in a CPR8E and a DCPR8E besides the D smart a$$es, I ordered plugs and used the sites application chart and they sent me the CPR instead ofthe DCPR.
The CPR is a 10mm thread and the DCPR would be the correct 12mm.gromage1 said:Anyone know the diff in a CPR8E and a DCPR8E besides the D smart a$$es, I ordered plugs and used the sites application chart and they sent me the CPR instead ofthe DCPR.
Ken- First-off, thanks for your great service with my oil! Do you carry the spark plugs for my 03'?, and what would you charge? Thanks-Bobo2man98 said:The CPR is a 10mm thread and the DCPR would be the correct 12mm.
Since AMSOIL started carrying NGK I have received a bunch of info on these. Check out page 5 on the attachment below for part number breakdown.

The Iridium plug that NGK shows for the V-Rod is the 6546 which is a DCPR8EIX.Skinbo said:Hey Ken useful info. Spooky as I just purchased a set of the Iridium IX plugs from a UK dealer. Can you confirm the part number for a VRSCA? I think the Uk ref was 2916?? Just want to make sure I ordered the correct plugs!
This is good info and I have to agree with it. I would prefer to see members use and I will use the Standard style plug. The reason for me listing the Iridium plug number was to provide the correct number to the member above as it appears there was an error.mjw930 said:Unless someone can show me proof to the contrary I would NOT run the iridium or any other fine wire plug on the V-Rod. Fine wire pligs have a different resistance characteristic that MAY, I repeat MAY cause problems with the Ion Sensing circuit the ECM uses for knock detection. In addition, the fine wire plugs are very fragile and considering a few people have had electrode issues I would not want to risk it in the V-Rod, especially considering you will gain NOTHING by running Iridium plugs except a thinner wallet.
Just my :2cents:, YMMV
Also, there are 2 versions of the standard plug, the DCPR8E (Stock # 4339) and the DCPR8E SOLID (Stock # 4179). If possible, make sure you get the SOLID version to prevent the top from vibrating loose down the road.
I've found this site to be pretty good http://www.ngk.com/default.asp. It's not their corporate site, it's a sales site but the info is reliable.
:them: Yes, please elaborate on that, I ran those plugs a lot in my turbo setup and my stock and big bore motors too. No issues for me, except when I melted the electrode off a couple when getting to lean with the turbo.Bruce Helland said:Please explain.....
you should NOT say stuff like that without an explanation..i have been useing ngk plugs without issues.please tell us why you believe what you say.
please explain. we have run ngk`s in our v-rod with good results and i have always run ngk`s in my race kawasaki`s.
This NGK bashing was stated Two and a Half years ago!Do you sell plugs for Champion? Just askin.
