I don't want to get into a pissing contest with you Ryan but I dissagree. I included a link to the NGK sparkplug reference guide for your reference.
I dont refer bullshit to someone looking for any advice. I use my own experiences and references. If the outside temp is too cold (winter riding) and your running too cold of a plug you cant reach optimal cylander temp to clean the plug, to prevent fouling. And vice versa. A short electrode dissapates the heat through the head where a long electrode dissapates more heat through the cylander.
I have personally checked head temps on my bike before and after a plug change and seen about 70 degree change.
There is a lot more to the correct plug then what people give credit for.
Just my 2 cents
