cant tell you about the plugs...
but chains are very important and i wouldn't go with anything cheap.
rk makes nice ones. im currently running one of theirs in x-ring gold plate.
i have a buddy who decided to buy a cheap chain from a local shop becuase it was rated as high as the more expensive ones..
well the chain broke destroyed his front sprocket cover,tail cowl and his leg.
NGK plugs, there's really no advantage to buying the "high perfromance" one's unless you've got serious race mod's on your bike...Just be sure to get the same type NGK as specified in the service manual for your bike. The heat range and plug gap are extremely important. Do double check your plug gap too, it usually is correct out of the box, but you can never be to sure.
Hehehe, a friend of mine used to say "buying cheap toilet paper doesn't pay". I have a ways to go before it's time to get a new chain, and I don't mind spending the extra for peice of mind. I won't skimp on tires, brakes, riding gear, sprockets or a chain. Interesting, my GMC uses NGK plugs, as well as the boat and skiis at work. No radical mods, and I'm happy with the way she's performed so far.
NGK CR9E are the stock plugs on the 00-02 year 6R's. Should be the same for yours. I like my RK chain. D.I.D., RK, EK, REGINA, you can't really go wrong. I haven't ever heard stories of problems with chains.
