I tightened them by feel ; )...
This year I've gone to E-3 Spark plugs e3.36 to replace the champion rahc.
I did this while I was waiting for my O2 sensors to be replaced and was fouling plugs.
The bike ran much longer with these than with the champions before really fouling it was astounding -- got me thru the weeks I was waiting to get the O2 sensors in and replaced.
A little more money than average plugs but they perform for me.
Update..I set my gap at .035...Runs great but about the same as when its set at .038...Should i stay at .035 or go back to 0.38 ? Or does it matter ?.. Good hing is it hauls balls compared to setting it at .040/;; )
I prefer the chopper so to each their own just giving ya a hard time
Personally I think between. 038 and. 035 on a stock motor probably splitting hairs but John is the guy that will have the data and experience to back it up

There was one differance..at .035 letting off the gas it did pop a tiny bit. (exhaust)
No. Been doing it for so long, I guess I earned the proper feel.
NOT the plugs causing that..
thats strange because when i put it back to .038 it doesnt do it. ; (
I will keep dinkling around..thanks for all the help ; )
I recently bought a pair of Champion RA8HC on Amazon which are supposed to be pre-gapped to .04. They were actually less than .025. Definitely check the gap before installing.
good advice, lots of shipping tends to beat and bang on little bendable things.
I have never ever installed plugs without setting/checking the gap even if they have the cardboard tubes on them.
... and adding some never-seize to the threads...
