Seems that different manuals state different gaps; general consensus is

.032-.036

Didn't know the manual stated imperial sizes too ?

I thought the recommended gap was .040? Which mine are set at and its running better than ever. (considering when I changed the plugs I also changed the wires, cleaned AF, removed the cats and added DK Thunder Torques)

The manual for a 2013 XC says the following about type and gap of sparkplugs in the maintenance section: NGK DCPR6E / .8 mm (.032"). This is in the "Service Specifications" section, "Tune up" table, top of page 2.2.

G'day,

From the 2014 Cross Country Tour Owners Manual:

Spark Plug Type: NGK DCPR6E
Spark Plug Gap: .031-.035 inch (0.8-0.9 mm)
Spark Plug Torque: 10.8-14.5 ft-lbs (14.6-19.7 Nm)

Inspect every 5,000 miles (8,000 kms) and replace at 30,000 miles (48,000 kms)
