A small reminder:

MODELS XXXXXX (IRIDIUM)

950 carbs NGK CR8EK (CR8EIX)

990EFI <- '08 NGK DCPR8E (DCPR8EIX fixed cap so not suitable or DCPR8EVX removable cap)

990EFI <- '08 DENSO XU24EPR-U ( IXU24 removable cap)

990EFI '09 -> NGK LKAR8BI9

.... without to change or modify something at the bike or the plugs

Voilà.....

I am able to locate NGK DCPR8E plugs locally.
The gap is .7mm but the manual specs out a gap of .8mm

Will it be OK for my 07 990?

The KTM plugs are hard to get and $$$ and even the dealer said to use the DCPR8E

BTW, the shop manual for the 07 990 specs out NGK CR8EK
I think I'll go look for those

Reviving an old thread because I'm in the middle of a service and turns out I bought the wrong spark plugs...d'oh. I bought the 16mm DCPR8EIX iridium plugs for the older 990's instead of the 14mm LKAR8BI9 iridium plugs for the newer 990's. Problem is, I cannot seem to find the new plugs listed anywhere nearby or even within a reasonable distance. Ordering from my dealer (who is closed on Sundays...and Mondays) or from an online store in the UK seem to be my only options... .

I was wondering if anyone has a source for these plugs in Norcal, or at least a reseller in N. America....(besides KTM USA). Thanks.

Thanks.

I should have mentioned...my dealer is ScuderiaWest, which is (essentially) KTMtwins.com. I would have run over there and picked up the (correct)plugs but they're closed until Tuesday.

I can't believe how hard these things are to get a hold of.

DENSO IXU24 For 990 (after 2009??)

A call out to the Collective Wisdom of the Crush-

Does the DENSO Iridium IXU24 fit 2009 and later 990 models? These are easier to get, and half the price of the NGK LKAR8BI9.

DENSO website says IXU24 for all 990 model years 2007(2006 Europe) forward, but their application list doesn't appear current. I looked around on their alternate websites for Europe and Australia, and the latest update was Feb 2013 on the Aussi web portal- which says 990ADV 2006>

Anybody has a clue, what spark plugs for a carbed 990?

I know
DCPR8EIX for 990 injection
CR8EIX for 950 carbed,
but what about 990 2006 carbed?

It seems the threads are different diameter, so there is no choice.

DCPR8EIX for 990 is the only one that fits.
Cheers
