Default OEM or platinum or iridium

Does anybody have experience with comparison of
OEM or platinum or iridium Spark-Plugs for Victory??

1. http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en...gs/pid-2873740
2. http://accel-motorcycle.com/motorcyl...ark-plugs.html
( I think Accel is only for HD plugs ? )
3. http://www.e3sparkplugs.com/news/?s=victory&x=0&y=0

or is OEM good enough for our engines no mater what kind of "bolt-on-upgrades" ??

E3.36 is what I use in my Vegas 106 cubic motor, has good response, and good gas mileage.

Spark plugs that are rated for the bike are good enough... anything else is marketing. Of course I tune my plugs... so call me old fashioned.

Just stick with the stock dcpr6e, you won't need anything more than that. It's funny the Vic site doesn't say what there platinum plugs are, definitely not an NGK as they don't make a dcpr6eix (anymore?)...

Id just go with the NGKs myself, the really expensive ones are supposed to last a lot longer...as long as you don't drop them on the ground.
NGK are fine.

I've run the E3.36 in my quads and there was noticeable difference between it and tbd recommended NGK plug. From my experience it actually helped a slightly rich main jet that I was running. Imo they do have a design that promotes a more complete burn.

I am asking coz a friend of mine delivered 4 engines brand new from Japan to a school for DYNO studies in the 90's, and 1 of the four had LESS then the other 3 who were very close anyway

First he put 100 Octane in the engine but this was not enough to reach the level of the other engines,

Then he bought the most expensive ( i think Iridium ) about 35 U$D per plug and then the engine passed the test so the school was happy... witnessed the testing and shipped to Arab or something like that

So if a more expensive plug on a Vic and 2 DYNO runs, then we can see if this would work for our bikes???

Most engines actually run worse with anything other than stock plugs. In my opinion, stock plugs is something that should never be swapped out with something other than stock...especially when comparing to split fire type plugs.
