Yes and no. Any of them will fit the threads and work more or less but the tapers can be a bit different. For Picco motors, Picco plugs are the way to go. Do some shopping around, you can find them cheaper than 15 bux.

I hear Sirio plugs also work well. I know they are fantastic in Nova motors but haven't tried them in a Picco yet.

IMO the Genuine Picco plugs is the Only way to go in Picco/jammin motor's......Other plugs may work...but will stretch out the taper on the button and WILL cause leaking down the road if you ever go back to picco plugs or do not tighten the plug like its a Wheel nut to prevent it from leaking....i Cant count how many guys ive seen try and run cheepo plugs and pay for it in the end with a dropped coil and a Messed up P+S...its NOT WORTH IT.....Picco plugs also last an Uber long time on a good tune.
