Where do you source your spark plugs?

    On my journey I’ve made a few fumbles - one of those being picking the wrong spark plug. In my naivety I accepted an eBay sellers statement that the BPR7ES superseded the BP7ES thinking “R” just meant better. Like R for racing! Yeah.

    Anyway, I found one other seller that has a set of two and I’ve ordered them. I’m trying to find more local that would be more cost effective and I’m coming up empty.

    Where do you find and buy your BP7ES plugs from? And when you found a source do you just buy a bunch hoard them knowing they’re in limited supply? I know there are alternatives from other manufacturers so maybe that’s where I need to look next. Additionally I know they make other plugs that have cooler ratings, but I’m not sure that’s what I need yet.

    Hopefully there are some good examples of where I can still go to get some of these. I’ve been tuning my carbs and have fouled out a number of my plugs, so I tend to buy a few extra just in case.

    I'm not sure I have a specific place. I always just look around the auto parts stores and order from wherever. They are almost never in stock locally.

    Hey thanks. I did end up finding some on Dime City Cycles, which is actually MikesXS. I thought I had updated this thread with that information but I guess not. I also ended up getting proper plug caps there too so it’s all good now.
