2009 990 Adventure Spark Plugs - LKAR8BI9

So it looks like the DCPR8E plugs for the '08 have been changed for this new strange number LKAR8BI9. Anybody got an idea about the specifics on this new plug? I did a google search and there are only german language returns. Scuderia West has yet to do a 15K service on a '09 so they didn't even know about the new '09 spec plug.

I recently purchased a 2009 990 Adventure S. Got 12500km's on the ODO. Will ask my dealer about the sparkplugs. Almost due for service.

are you sure that is the spark plug that is listed for the 990 because that's the iridium spark plug for the 1190.

Nah, NGK is DCPR8E or DCPR8EVX on the 990 & CR8EK on the 950.
NGK Iridium models are DCPR8EIX for the 990 & CR8EIX for the 950.
Maybe different on the 2009 though.......

Be aware that NGK DCPR8EIX are with a fixed cap and LC8 EFI need a removable cap...

Was not able to have these without removable cap so, i decided to order in Denso, perfect and less expensive as NGK are.

A member on a french forum has proposed to a lot of members to order NGK Iridium on the net, grouped purchase, plugs came with a fixed cap, just good enough to show on the workshop shell.....

LC8 last generation use these LKAR8BI9 plugs like RC8 use, in fact, new heads from RC8 for the 990ADV 2009-2010

The 2009 990 Adventure owners manual lists the NGK LKAR8BI9 as the OEM spark plug. Checked with a local dealer today, who had none in stock, and they want over $25 each for the plug. The engine spare parts manual just list a KTM stock number with no referance to LKAR8BI9. Anyone know if this plug can be purchased outside the KTM parts system for a lower price?

Achtung brauchen ich eine Iridium-Stecker für die 2008.

I'm confused... Did someone say where I can get "plugs" for my 2008 990 Adventure. Preferably in the USA. I'm just a simple minded dirt rider and need my hand held.

I bought the ngk cr8eix with fixed cap and transform the cap with tools, now it's more thin and can enter, it works perfect since 21 000 km.
