    Are you buying from the Johnson dealer? I will not buy my NGK plugs at the Yamaha dealer for the $$ reason - 3X what you can get them for elsewhere.

    Just my experience.

      WOW!! I use NGKs in my v6 and I think I pay something like 4 bucks a plug. I realy erks me when I hear that people are getting stiffed out of their hard earned bucks by the retailers. Dave, were do you live in MI? Im up there about 5 times a year. Brighton, Howell and Commerce area. So the weather sucks and theyre tryin to rape ya on plugs but you still live in a cool state.[^]

        Gary I live over on the lake michigan side in a little harbor town of South Haven. As for the price of the plugs, These must be special critters as the dealers seem to think there gold. I have since heard horror stories of the plugs in the fitch outboars. Anyway I am researching the situation and hopfully will come up with a proper plug in the 3 to 4 dollar range.

          Dave, Lets fish this fall! Ok, im not a tech but im around them all the time. Acording to the gurus, all you have to do with that fict motor is index your plugs and run high/ mid grade fuel. There is nothing to resurch. If you are running a vro or any factory oil system, listen to the manual. If you mix your oil in the tank as I do then run the next hotter range on your plug and mix you fuel and oil 50/1 and run synthetic only. Seems to work for me. My boats run well.
