    Which spark plugs for 2000 yamaha gp1200r

    Which spark plugs do you guys use for your 2000 yamaha gp1200r? Can you just go to any auto parts store and get a car spark plug and make sure the gap is to spec and put it in? Just curious if there was such a thing as marine spark plugs or are they all esentially the same? Thanks.

    The NGK`s that are specified for that particular ski...

    there are a such thing as marine plugs and powersports plugs. the difference is in the material that these plugs are made of.

    I have to take them out and see what it has in there now. I have heard of people just going to the nearest auto parts store and using car spark plugs but didn't know if it mattered or not?

    NGK BR8ES-11's are the proper plug. They aren't expensive and I get mine from the local Advanced Auto Parts.

    BR8ES or BR9ES for a few more rpm the -11 means it has a 1.1mm gap, so can buy any dash number and gap it yourself.
