iridium plugs

I've been using CR8EIX since day one and NGK Racing Cables. My wives Stelvio started missing once and the plug wire had come loose out of the coil, only the rubber boot was holding it in place.

Changes and updates for Moto Guzzi usually involve a new color. Nothing has been mentioned at this time. Best thing I did was getting rid of my GSA and buying the Stelvio. BMW is way over complicated.
