    Hi everyone

    I've bought damaged V7 III Racer 2017 from an auction and trying to repair it. The engine head covers are easy to replace, but spark plug caps are impossible to find.

    Sparks, according to the manual, are NGK CPR8EB-9 with a terminal nut and the only caps NGK has in their catalog for these sparks are XD05F. However, they have 102* angle instead of 90* and require a threaded stud instead of a nut.

    Original caps are a bit $$$ and are three weeks to deliver.

    I'm confused which caps could be used as a replacement of original ones.

    @JACoH it worked! :) the bike starts and drives. Thank you!

    Ordered also new spark plug covers for the engine, hope they'd fit these ∠102 spark caps.

    The original V7 plug caps are 102...

    Not idea why the previous owner uses 90...

    Head covers do not fit CPR8EA-9 plugs. Is it possible, that Guzzi 've changed smth in 2017 model or I'm doing smth wrong?

    Are you sure the plug covers are snugged down all the way?

    I've installed them properly, but they still don't fit.
    Although many claim "NGK 8072 XD05F Plug Caps" fit V7III 2017-..., they don't. V7III have different to V7II cover. I've tried few options and "NGK 8052 VD05F Plug Cap" do the job with "NGK 2306 CPR8EA-9 Standard Plugs"

    The matter resolved. Thanks :)
