I think the best possible effect of changing to "Accuspark" plugs is that they'd work as well as ordinary plugs.

Yep - agree with TT, only one electrode is probably going to fire anyway so no big deal, Bosch do as similar one and way back there was "Golden Lodge" supposed to be good for 2strokes.

I had issues with getting the project RGF to fire and tried quite a few (too many) plugs, in doing so I found Bosch to be quite good the plugs the one below I found good on the project and the Flash
Short reach is a Bosch W6AC - the long reach is a Bosch W3CS it has a very fine central electrode of a particular metal I've forgotten
Since I switched to Electronic on the RGF I now use Iridium (sp)

I don't like the idea of the three earth posts. With a normal plug I index to get the gap facing the center of the combustion chamber. With a plug like that you have three shadows to hinder combustion.

from here http://www.sparkplugs.co.uk/pages/technical/Bosch-to-NGK-cross-ref.htm

seems W7A  = B6HS  -  Hotter would be   W8A    B5HS

Plus variants for protruding  and so forth

Ah just seen Kiwipoms post

I've had the one set of Iridium plugs in my Harley for over 4 years now..
every year I pull them out to check them...
I give them a wipe over with a rag soaked in Metho
& I know they are good for another 10 thousand Kms.

I just noticed these on eBay & will be getting a set for the Beeza soon.

Wozza those particular plugs are a resistor type, not good for a magneto. No worries if you are running electronic ignition.
