8's are the right heat range. You will foul 9's regularly.

And before it comes up, a colder plug WILL NOT make the engine run cooler.

This is true. And the stock 8 heat range is fine. And please don't waste your money on iridium plugs....for anything you own. Spark is identical, just a little longer electrode life.

I switched to the CR8EIX and agree there isn't a noticeable performance increase, but they do last longer. A standard CR8E costs $4 and the iridium CR8EIX costs $7. I wouldn't really call that a waste of money. People have wasted far more money on there bikes buying bling.
