    Hi,
    I've got a 2010 2.0 petrol manual EX saloon, 25k miles.
    Do the Honda spark plugs come with the gap preset?
    Either way, I always used to check the gap but I've driving diesel for some years now so a bit out of touch.
    I've looked everywhere and cannot find a reference to the gap so any advice would be appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Ampers.

    Sorry bud no one has responded to this

    Yes they will be preset but as a best practice its always good to check. New plugs do tip protectors around them to avoid transit deflection on the electrode..but stranger things have happened before!



    Some Information for you

    Spark Plugs
    NGK: IZFR6K11NS (Use NGK they are better than Denso):Niceone:
    DENSO: SKJ20DR-M11S

    Honda Part Numbers
    NGK 12290-R60-U01
    DENSO 12290-R60-U02

    Electrode Gap
    Standard (New): 1.0-1.1 mm (0.039-0.043 in.)
    Torque setting
    25 N·m (2.5 kgf·m, 18 lbf·ft).

    E__0500.
    BTW your car has just covered 25K they don't need changing before 75K miles, so you still got another 50k miles life left out of them,personally these plugs don't wear that quickly they can quite easily outlast their 75k service intervals.
