Default spark plug gap ??

ok the owners manual and service manual states the gap on a 2001 r6 is 0.03 inches,not 0.30. thirty thousands
0.03 is yery thin and i cannot find a wire gap gauge that thin.is it a misprint in the manual

Does that plug have an iridium tip?
I ask cuz I dont believe regapping those type of plugs is recommended.

Go find yourself some metric shims.

0.6 ~ 0.7 mm (0.0236 ~ 0.0276 in)

Yes it is. When ever I work on my bike I make sure I do all my measurements in metric, the bike was design in metric, so things will usually come out to a whole number.

Can you check the gap on bike plugs with a car plug shim or do you need a special shim? Also you gap both sides of the plug right?
