I am currently running the iridium plugs in my bike. I have found that they foul out less and last much longer than the stock plugs.

Are you using the pulstar in a victory? If so, what's the plug number? Their site only lists one brand of motorcycle.

This intrigues me. Everyone wants better gas mileage; especially these days. Do you have a part number for various Victory motors?

What is the e3 you referred to? Not the tires?

Edit: Hahaha... looks like Ridenman was curious about the same time I was.

I have been running E3 plugs (3.36) for almost a year now. Dyno tests have shown a about a 7
HP gain in a V8, and they claim better gas mileage. I haven't seen any improvement.

I used to be into high performance 2 stroke wave runners and we had good results with side-gapping our plugs. Anything to open up the spark to give a more complete burn can give your engine a bit more punch. It's an old racing trick. Indexing your plugs can help as well but the gains from these things are small and sometimes not worth the trouble on a recreational type vehicle.

Thanks for the number. What bike are you running this in? Model and year? 92, 100, or 106 ci? Will it work in all of them?

While looking for pulstar plugs, check internet scam postings. The plugs have been out since 2009, and no one knows how great they are? Engineering time may be shakey too. The number comes up as for Harley Davidson, maybe they are the same as?
