Hang, Russ is right. This is what you call “picking nits” but like you I obsess over this kinda stuff but truthfully it it won’t make a bit of difference. Now that said, years ago I read several books by a guy (dr. Michael Jacobs) who was big into ignition systems and developed a great ignition and company (Jacobs Ignition) for vehicles, and he explained in depth the various ignition parts, on spark plugs he was a proponent of using the biggest plug gap the ignition could support because of better emissions, performance & mpg’s.
But w/o a lot of equipment & testing you just don’t know what the ignition will support, so stick with the factory recommended specs and what your them to is fine, don’t sweat it.
Personally, I put in NGK iridium plugs (you don’t gap them) because they provide a better spark but mainly because they should last 60k to 100k. But that’s me. If your bike starts good, doesn’t stutter or miss then you’re good to go , go for a ride and don’t worry about it.
