Plug change time

Getting ready to change the plugs at 40k. I've searched the forum and checked past links but no one seems to have them in stock. Looking for a source if anyone has one.


Thanks

I just checked the Napa in Tucson and they have them available for pickup for $14.49 each (according to their web site).

Here's the store:

Thank you. I called the NAPA near me but they haven't returned my call. Will make a run down to the store you suggested tomorrow.

Well I called them. They only had 2 available. He checked the other stores and said they all had zero stock. He also said they would not be stocking them anymore. Bummer

I ordered a set of 6 (half-off!) from Sparkplugs.com back in late-August, and here's the message I received in September:

Thank you for contacting us! I do apologize when you first placed your order we had a note that the lead time for your order to ship was 3-5 business days, but we have just received an update from NGK that LMAR8AI-8 Laser Iridium Plugs are on a “National Backorder” and won’t be available till the end of November.

So, purchased them from the dealer for twice as much...


2014 GTL

Previous steeds: Honda VFR750; Suzuki Hayabusa; Honda SuperHawk; Honda ST1300; Suzuki B-King; Kawasaki Concours

Summit Racing has an estimated ship date of 12/20 when I plug that part number in. Looks like the back order got back ordered.

I ordered a set from JEGS High Performance a few weeks ago once I learned they were back ordered nation wide. $12.99 each before shipping & tax. Projected delivery date is 29 October, but it remains to be seen if that holds.

I don’t know what dealers charge, but the OEM parts fiche lists them at nearly $27.00 each.

Looks like you "could" buy them directly from NGK. But, they show national back order, too. $11.86 on their website. https://www.ngk.com/product.aspx?zpid=46681 If you look at their fitment section, the K1600 is the only application for this spark plug. Makes me want to stock up on some if and when they become available. Sure could be a maintenance pinch/pain point.
