    well, the stock plug according to suzuki is a cr9ek as far as for your climate, the cr8ek is recommened. I'm not sure what the difference between the es and the ek is, but dr8es is not in the ballpark.

      Try these helpful links:

      and

      Just a note: I ONLY use NGK plugs, nothing else, and I work on 89-05 Katana 600's and 750's. I keep about 20-40 plugs here all the time, and I only stock two: JR9C and CR9EK

      These are BOTH dual prong plugs.............worth the extra money IMHO
      I've owned over 70 Katanas - you think I know anything about them?
      Is there such a thing as TOO MANY BIKES?
      Can you go TOO FAST on a bike?

          96 is the cross-over year for spark plugs (96+ uses CR9EK and CR9EX); the previous plug is a larger plug used in the 88 - 95 models.

          Note that the "R" should be in any Katana plug rating (has to do with the resistance value for the plug), and the number represents the heat range (stock heat range is 9 for 96+).

          1988 - 1995:
          NGK DR8ES (standard)
          NGK DR8EIX (iridium)


          1996 - 2005:
          NGK CR9EK (standard)
          OR
          NGK CR9EIX (iridium)
          OR
          DENSO U27ETR

          Cheers
