I made the switch to the hotter plug and my VTX has run much better. To my knowledge, the only X's that came with the 6L11's were the 02's which had fouling issues. Hondas's fix was to but the hotter plugs in every year since.JASN69 said:Its time for me to replace my plugs and I am currently running NGK IFR6L11.Is there a big difference in the HOT plugs vs standard temp plugs? What about performance, is one better than the other?
Should I go with a different brand?
Yes it is. The 5T has a platinum disc embedded in the ground electrode where the 5L does not. In the case of the VTX, it won't buy you much, but if they are the same price, the 5T is technically the better plug. Both are exactly what your bike likes best.Can anyone tell me if the IFR5T 11 plug is ok to run in my 2003 vtx1800
