Too hot of a plug and you risk detonation - too cold and you loose power. If you have CDI, you will benefit by using a rare earth metal like Iridium - very hot spark (not plug, the spark). These are large (and old) combustion chambers with two big valves, high pressure and high turbulence that need a hot powerful spark for peak performance.

Also, you'll need to experiment with gaps. I set mine to .032, starting at .025.

Good luck.
Don, you are twin plugged plus you obviously did a lot of test and observation.
Did you notice any patterns top plug to bottom plug or cylinder to cylinder?
Could you or did you disable to bottom row?
