From using a plug finder on NGK website the bike takes DR8EA which under the additional data give a gap of 0.7mm

Thank you for confirming this info.

I do have the workshop manual but could not find phrase Spark Plug gap. Actually I think they phrased differently. It says Electrode thickness. I wasn't certain if it refers to the actual electrode thickness or the Gap. I guess that is how they translated it into English Rolling Eyes

Thanks. I do have Hanes manual for YZF1000 Thunderace. I just wasn't sure about the electrode gap.

I got all spark plugs changed. Not bad at all. All you need is 18mm spark plug wrench and a wobble connector. 1st plug was somewhat hard but I figured it out and changed the rest within 10 minutes.
