    Lightbulb CR8E Plugs Required

    The recommended plugs, I came to know, for my bike are NGK CR8E. Then the search started and on a thread on plugs here on PW someone mentioned that CR8E plugs come with Suzuki GS150, which I later got confirmed from our fellow member amjadch from Islamabad.
    I had been to Lahore yesterday, kept on looking for the plugs on several shops but they had no GS150 plug with them. Finally I found a Suzuki 3S centre and asked them for the CR8E plugs as come original with the bike. The person there showed me the original plug which he said comes fitted with the bike from the factory, it was not an NGK plug but some HD something by Denso.
    As I reckoned from the situation the person on the Suzuki centre didn't even know if a plug called CR8E existed, he said that its the Denso plug which was given to us by the dealer and the same plug is used in both 150 and 125 Suzuki bikes. I went to Suzuki centre near Lakshmi chowk, I am not sure what that market is called but there were several bike accessory shops and sale points there.
    Long story short, I have not been able to find the CR8E plugs, still looking for them. Can anyone mention any shop in Lahore or Rawalpindi/Islamabad where I may find this plug??

    Actually I am looking for the CR8E plug at the moment. Currently I have C7HSA plugs on the bike as is used in CD70, but this plug has a shorter head length, means the combustion is not taking place at the ideal place.
    I am posting a pic of both the plugs below:

    the denso equivalent would have a heat range of 24 - take a look at the plug and see if it matches the CR8E length - if yes - buy them.

    @Xulfiqa

    The Denso plugs I saw had the bigger head size, same as CR8E plug, but I didn't buy the Denso one thinking that it might have a different heat range. Denso are also produced in Japan but I think the Denso I saw at the Suzuki outlet were Pakistan made, which of course would be no match to the Japanese product.
    It seems that Suzuki has replaced the CR8E plug for Denso one. Just wondering what might be the cause.

    @7th gear
    raw1 s rite 7th gear. Copper core plug s gud thn normal bt les durable as iridium or platinum. If u want autolite extreme iridium plug, i ve it 4 u. I can courier. These metals have very
    high melting points and resist
    corrosion and fouling. So they last
    much longer in this very harsh
    environment. As a result the plugs made
    with these metals do not have to be changed very often, and they continue to
    provide an excellent spark for
    ignition.
    Iridium and platinum plugs last a LOT
    longer in service than copper core plugs.
    So spending extra for the iridium plugs will yield you a longer service
    life and you don't have to have
    anything done to your plugs for a
    long, long time. These were the aspects
    of durability. Iridium is the hardest
    element so far discovered, then platinum. Now Talking about
    Performance
    Iridium plugs resulting in less
    misfiring and no spark, the outcome
    being a dramatic improvement in
    combustion. It ll increase pick as well as top speed. I m using Iridium and due to which i was able to reach 120+ on
    deluxe. I m contented and thts y i
    recommended to all fellows. Its the rite plug 4 u. Coper core s far less durable thn iridium. If u r interestd thn u can contact me. Thx...

    double check the entire plug number - and ask the parts guy to cross reference it in his parts book. If the plug performs nicely in a single cylinder high compression motorcycle like the GS150 it'll be good for your application too.

    Sorry for replying too late. Yep its true that Suzuki Uses CR8E with their GS 125/150 bikes. but couples of years back they were short in market & even Suzuki service center was not having those in stock. After that they change the OEM Plug brand from NGK to some other (may be Denso) So that may be a good replacemnet of NGK CR8E but you need to check specs of both these plugs for 100% compatabilty. But in case if its not 100% identical wid NGK CR8E even than Denso spark plugs used in current Suzuki GS series wud be far far better than of C7HSA.

    The Service manual for GS 125/150 recomends NGK CR8E or Denso U24ESR-N to be used with these bikes.

    However below Cross refrnce manual says that NGK CR8EH-9 can be replaced with ND (Nippon Denso) U24FER9

    Thanks for that info. I have been using C7HSA on my bike all this time till I came to know of the recommended CR8E. I don't know much about iridiums but on some site I read they have cons to them as much as pros, so right now I am looking for the proper plug.

    Yes I intend to use it for FZR plugs, the normal shape wrench makes if difficult to open and put back the plugs since the whole place is so congested, the good thing about this wrench shown in pics above is that its grip can tilt to one side and it becomes easy to open the plugs. My mechanic had this plug, made it look so easy. I have been looking for this plug wrench for some time but could not find in my own city nor Sargodha. Now will look for it in Lahore.

    I have a Suzuki GS150 since May/June 2008, it came with DENSO U24ESR-N. I used an NGK CR8E after replacing the perforated carburettor diaphragm. It was not as good as the Denso U24ESR-N. So I bought Denso from Suzuki Showroom and it is much better. I am not saying Denso is better than NGK, its just my observation that in Pakistani markets NGK has multiple levels of quality and fakes, whereas Denso doesn't. You should buy it from Suzuki showrooms only, with SGP logo on the cover.

    From: Spark plug cross reference

    Possible spark plugs for NGK CR8E:
