Spark Plug question?

I have been hunting a sputtering problem, and in that search, the dealer replaced the original NGK CR8EK plugs with new NGK CR8EK plugs. But the Triumph manual calls for NGK CR9EK plugs. The Hanes manual also calls for CR9EK. NGK shows CR9EK. Every source that I can find shows CR9EK. Which is correct?

Nevermind, I am switching today.

Already tried dealers, now I have tried plugs. No change with either.
