OS, O'Donnell and other plugs will work fine. I dont think Novarossi plugs would be so well.

Technopower plugs should be a direct fit. A #6 should do the job. Maybe a 7 since they say their plugs are hotter than the original GRPs.

GRP has started up their production again and is selling plugs, as with their tires you should be able to get them directly from them.

There are also some other brands selling GRP plugs under their brandname, I know MAX has them.

All I can say is that none of the current plugs are as good as the original "Ninja" Plugs.

The last batch GRP plugs which hitted the market during/after the fire of their factory were rubbish. A friend had bought the new production plugs and they seem to be working the same as the old Ninja.

We are switched over to Merlin Glowplugs and have no issues with them, they give a good response, do not get damaged easily and also the price is right (when buying voor 2000 dollar of plugs)

Default GRP Plugs

I purchased 30 GRP Plugs from The Border online last season and they are absolute garbage. They seam to be GRP Fakes. They came in zip lock bags unlike the original GRP plastic cases all the plugs usually come in. They do not last and will lose the filament and scratch your piston up very badly.

I contacted The Border about the authenticity of these plugs and of course they denied it, but please do yourself a favor and only purchase these plugs from someone you can trust.
