Great list, just done my 10K using Syn3 which works fine and NGK DCPR9E Iridium Plugs. Feels much sharper!

Re the plugs I have read the posts re the Knock sensor etc but I am not convinced that the change in a standard motor is too significant. I am monitoring performance just in case;)

If you have a stroked, BB or charger then significant re mapping is required so this needs to be taken into account.

Critiques, not Criticism

Amsoil has no "e."

There are no carbs on these bikes.

The bikes without Brembo brakes use silicone based brake fluid. The Brembo brakes use DOT 4.

Off the top of my head, there is no need to put thread sealer on the oil plug.

NGK plugs??? Isn't there a concern about fine wire plugs? Great list that is the only question I have.
It's my understanding talking with Ken from Amsoil that the part # above is NOT the fine wire version of the NGK plug.
