A quick fleabay search will usually turn up some new old stock. But as with anything check the prices carefully. I've noticed some vendors will offer them at low prices but the shipping cost seems to be for a private courier with armed guards. There is a vendor near me who has been asking for $20 for a FE50 and $20 for shipping, totally ridiculous. The two below I found by searching KLG FE70. I usually query "KLG Spark" then spend a little time going through them. Skipping those that are obviously not what I'm after, but double checking those that aren't entirely clear as to what they are. Those that list by the car they fit are a good bet for being reasonably priced. Don't discount those that can be taken be taken apart (detachable) and cleaned "DFE70". It's the same plug.KLG FE70 if you can get them, sometimes they turn up, if you see them purchase them, better than anything currently produced.
Well yes and no, it is true there are endless possibilities to modify a Vincent to "make it better" but the environment that the spark plug operates in, the combustion chamber, is not so easy to change from the original specification, 8-1 compression ratio seems to be about all you need, a spark is delivered by whatever means and jumps across a gap, the ratio between fuel and air should be about the same whatever device is being used, the fuel is rubbish compared to days gone by, but should still ignite, none of that explains why KLG plugs work the best for me, but they do.It seems unlikely to me that old technology like the KLG FE70 is the answer for every Vincent, and I don't think anyone is suggesting they are. Unlike modern bikes which are basically identical, in each model, every Vincent is now pretty unique, as has been attested many, many times. Therefore most Vincents will "prefer" a particular plug. One size does not fit all.
