.028-.032. I find .030 to be the best.

How about a 96 ZRT 600, I run at .030", what would be optimal?

Interesting............I run NGK BR9EYA's and have never gapped them. I figured they're gapped out of the box.

Both my ZRT600 & ZR500 seem to like it that way. Only fowled one plug in 10 years. (fresh one's installed every season of course)

............I'll be back in a bit..................

You should gap them before you install them. Better to be safe than sorry.
