Plug heat Ranges

Hey guys. I have multiple sets of plugs for the 1299. NGK MAR9A-J and MAR10A-J. The bike ships with the 9 but several places list the 10 for the 1199/1299 as well. The plugs are identical except for the heat range. The 10 is a colder plug (NGK is backwards). Anyone using a colder plug on the Panigale? Thanks
Thanks from GunMoto

I've only bothered with colder plugs under hard track use with the compression ratio bumped up. With stock internals and ignition timing I leave the plugs at the stock heat range.

I guess with high-octane fuel and a reduced spark gap colder plugs would give a more precise timing. But all this is just mystique to me
Guys here all install the OEM NGK MAR9A-J 6869.

I don't see how a spark plug would affect timing. Yes, I second the idea of a colder plug for hard track use.

It doesn't. But advanced timing can affect the heat range needed for the plug.
