Anyone try the NGK IX Iridium Spark Plugs for the R3? Supposed to give better milage and power.
Spitfires caused misfires at idle and cat damage due to the raw fuel passed, hence all the lawsuits and the demise of almost everything "Splitfire".For awhile we were throwing them away just as fast as we could pull them out of customer's cars. It was a gimick backed by heavy advertising as a scheme to make large profits, they didn't cost any more to make, but they sure were a lot more expensive to buy. On top of that they were a cheaply made poor quality plug, most had compression leaks, many had cracked porcelin.
The best part of the Splitfire scam was that Harley Davidson sold them under the Screaming Eagle brand.....
