how is it going guys? I need your help on this one. In my manual it states when I change my plugs I need to look at the color of the plug to determine if this one is the right plug for the bike. I am working on my 02 gsxr 1k . the stock plug is a cr9e. the manual states that a light brown color is the correct color of the plug. it says that if the plg is colored white or black it needs to be adjusted. the manual also gives me the choice of either a cr8e or a cr10e if it is one of the white or black colors , but it doesent say what the colors mean or what hottness plug I need to use to match the color it just says if this is the case then I ned to take it to the dealership and let them fix it. well I can tell you I am not going to take my bike to the dealership to change my plugs! I have called and talked to 4 supposed experts in the gixxer field and i have gotten 2 different answers from all of them! I am confused. do I need to stay the same ? do i need a hotter plug ? do I need a colder plug? I have a new k&n filter in it and a yosh slip on and I tre. and thats it. my bike has 8000 miles on it. I live in indiana for elevation. I only run 93+ Octane and I did put fuel stabil in it this winter. it has been ridden with the stabil in it. Please help me! please write I agree or disagree with the comment made by others i am taking a poll !
