Thank you guys. And that gap also is listed as set to 11 mm for the ....IX-11. The ...IX are pre-set to 8 mm.
Just purchased a set of 6. Total CAD $56.39 including door to door delivery. It will be a good excuse to re-visit the air-fuel mix adjustment.
Looking forward to see if there is any difference - the bike has been starting and running beautiful as is on the NGK BP6ES (7333) plugs. So I will have 6 good used plus 4 brand new spares. Good for the spare engine - if I will ever fire it up.

Good point ! For what it's worth: I use "Permatex Di-Electric Grease" on the Pilot-Screw O-rings and also on the threads. "A little goes a long way " !
I also use it on any O-ring. Assembly is much easier and the Silicone grease doesn't migrate and seems to have less of a tendency to attract dirt/debris.
