More stores need to carry spark plugs

I called literally every store within 100 miles, motorcycle, atv, and general automotive. No one carried the IFR9H11, and the kicker they had to be specialty ordered, would take 7-12 days and I have to pay for the shipping. I ordered some off amazon, so we will see how these plays out. One store had the 8H11 part number but realistically Yuma AZ does not get cold.

Anyone we have this problem?

I buy my plugs and filters from Amazon and they get to my door within three days.

The shops around here want to charge way too much.

Yeah, plugs for the RC aren't stocked in many places at all. If you have a local dealer you like to patronize and want to keep in business, let them know. Tell them what you need and what kind if prices will keep you coming back. Don't be suprised if you still have to pay a little more. To me it is better to get what I need right away and I'll pay a buck or two extra a plug to get it anytime they are open.




I'm always right.

That's some bad luck - when I replaced my plugs, the local Advance Auto Parts stocked them (and they were cheaper than Amazon's prices too IIRC).
