My 954 is running a little rough due to a car wash, long story, i'm already taking a beating over it. Anyway, I need to put in new plugs. I stop at Cycle Gear, the plugs for my bike are $17.99 states the sales person, cool, $18.00 for four of them is GREAT. 'no, sir that is EACH', he tells me, my riding buddies pick me off the floor and I say 'you're kidding, right?'. Needless to say, I pass on that one and head the local dealership. $15.00 each he states, I say 'no, what's MY price, i'm not paying retail'. He talks to the parts manager, and the jackoff 'parts boy' tells me 'sorry, no discount on plugs.' Well, they lost a customer and the 5 or so guys I ride with will NEVER go there either.

I'm looking for the NGK IMR9C-9H, sparkplugs.com has them for $11.00 each. Still, I feel as if I am taking it right in the ass and haven't been kissed yet. Does anyone else know of a cheaper place? A better (cheaper) plug?

I was just out at SPARKPLUGS.COM, does anyone have a promotional/coupon code I could use? They have a field for checkout and wondered if anyone would mind sharing it with me.

They recommend changing them every 8000 miles, and yes, they are that expensive, as they're the iridium plugs. I think some folks haven't changed them that often, and the bike still runs fine.

Wasn't there a thread on the old forum about this, and someone posted about a mail order place where the iridium plugs were like 7$ or 8$??

Yeah K9, I start fires with $50's, save the $100 bill for the expensive cigars!

If someone can remember the place that has them for $7 or $8, let me know as I'm gonna' order them tomorrow.

I was thinking it was one of the Hondagals, but then again I am experiencing the onset of Alzheimer's, so I could be totally wrong. Have you done a thorough net search?
