Post Spark plug gap?
Hi guys,

So I ordered and received a set of BKR7EKC-N spark plugs.
I wanted to gap them to the right measurement (1.1mm is it?) but when I opened the box these had twin tips on them like this:

How do I gap these?

Gap is meant to be 0.8mm

If you purchased the part number you stated then you don't need to gap as they should be pre gapped to 0.8mm

If you purchased the -11 like in the pic that means they're pre gapped to 1.1mm

Yes I purchased the part number stated (pic was for illustration).

Thanks Vectose, yes it seems that these are not meant to be gapped and are fine to run as is.

TBH I would've preferred the single tip ones but anyway...

Standard ones are just "BKR7E"

No extra digits

I'm going to stick with these since I already have them.
I don't think they should be worse than the normal BKR7E hopefully.

I went copper plugs all round as I am not after long life plugs + copper has the best spark (even though this will really be negligible in a real life situation)

So what should be the standard gap for a PF7RM?
