Thanks, I know that is what the owners manual says, But I have never had good luck with Champion
Plugs. Have they worked well for you? Is there another better plug? I see the Bosch silver sport #7701 or
Xr4cs listed. Would that be a better choice? Thanks for your help.

I've always has good results with NGK plugs. The DCPR8E is recommended for the 750 Paso.

+1 :cool:

Iridium plugs is also an option: DCR8EIX. Gap should be 0,8mm. Esp on the "low" compression pistons ;)

while you can go with iridium, platinum whatever plugs you`ll notice that the most simple ones work best.

The champions run best in the Sport for me. And they are cheap. Less than $2 at the local auto parts store. I never had a good view of Champion plugs in the past, but they work better than any $10 plug I've tried.

Cheers, Phil

if you would do a little searching here on plugs you would find a lot of Paso owners before they had a Paso wouldn't put champions in there worst enemies lawn mower.Then they bought a Paso,or 2 or 3 and we all use Champions now

NGK iridiums work but the simple fact is champions will last longer and for a lot cheaper
