Which spark plugs to use?

I'm wondering what spark plug works best for a 1967 r50/2 with short plugs? It's my understanding that it would use either a short plug or longer plug. I trust mine is the short version.
Thanks.

go slow around for a test

Wheel the motor around or screw driver the fly wheel teeth around before kicking it over if you try anything different. Any doubt check the plug tip for any contact.

It's definitely the short plug. Is Bosch best and which one to get or shall I say number?
Thanks!

Bosch W250T/2 or the BMW number is 12 12 8 003 570. From BMW they are $17.00 for the pair. If your riding the bike 5k a year they will last you 5-7 years which make them pretty cheap.
