I don't have a d600 but just a suggestion I had the ngk cr9ek in tt600 and changed to ngk iridiums. Couple bucks more but huge difference.

Thanks I will give them a try. Any inexpensive websites to pick them up from.

The OEM Spark plugs for the D600 are indeed CR9EK

Contrary to popular internet and sports bike journos opinion, I would disagree that there is any perceptible difference in performance to be gained with Iridium plugs. Their benefit is in longer service life. An expensive luxury (at least here in South Africa) to my mind that is better spent on a fresh set of plugs at the recommended service intervals.

That said, Iridium plug threads are like oil, filters and tyre, carbs vs. EFI, Hinckley vs. Thailand threads. Dozens of often contentious opinions. I should most probably should have avoided this thread, but there it is...I never learn...

Just got mine in the mail (cr9ek). Twenty-seven buckaroos!

My .02 cents...... copper is more conductive (more bang)..... all the other fancy ones are less conductive but last longer (more buck)

Saw those, looked odd saying R6 only but hey. Also FYI, pulled my stockers and they were cr9e.... not cr9ek. The only diff is the cr9e"K" had two... posts? Anyway, starts wonderfully now, very quickly, runs smooth. Spray some wd40 into the TB's when your in there. Also FYI, the coils pull straight out, it might be difficult to pull them if they haven't been pulled before. That had me worrying till I got one out haha. Good luck!
