Okay,

Got a price for a kit (filters, plugs, and oil)

1) Should I need to replace the plugs yet?

2) Will...

You'll have no problems! For the Throttle Body Synchronisation almost any carb balancer will do the job. I am however, a bit on the tight side, so made myself a "water manometer" (do a search) only I use Shell 2-stroke oil instead of water as it is easier to see and damps the guage better.

Good advice regarding the homemade manometer......this will provide a very accurate TB sync...

 

As for plugs, I would run them for at least 10K miles before replacement......they just don't need it early in your engine's life......BTW, I use Autolite 3923s for my boxer. Better starting, slight fuel mileage improvement and they're $0.99 each.

 

What oil did you buy?

Unauthorized? By who.

 

I got permission from BMW Berlin.......but, YOU must still run those NGK high-dollar ones.....sorry smart guy.

On an 04 Dual Spark RT, using spark plugs other than stock is really not necessary. I do not even think that the bottom plugs have an equivalent that is cheaper than what BMW supplies. Typical life from these plugs is 25k +
