    Yesterday I stopped by the dealer to get some new plugs. My 03 FXST takes the 6R12 plugs. The dealer talked me into a set of Platinum plugs. I don't know if there are any advantages to running these in a bike. I know they last forever in a cage.

    Any benefits to running PP in my injected FXST?

    Less money in your wallet is about the only one. Hard to beat the stock 6R12 plugs.

    what was the reason they gave to switch to the PP?
    From what I have read and have been told - the standard HD plug is just fine.

    Shoot,

    I told the counter guy I wanted the 6R12, and he recommended I go with the PP's. Oh well, live and learn, keep the dealer in business.

    I need read more threads on this site. If I would have studied up before going to the dealer I would have saved some $$$. Plus, I could have had a good arguement for the counter guy.

    Oh yes,

    His justification was the parts catalog listed them for 99 and up FXST.

    I have a sign in the office that says "I will Google before asking stupid questions." I have to modify that to say, "I will read HDTalking before going to the dealer."
