I don't think you will see any real difference in performance. Both are the same
temperature grade. The EK should last longer because you have twice as much
electrode to burn away before the gap becomes excessive. The EK may also
be more resistant to cold start fouling.

I have a set of CR8EK in my ZZR11 at the moment. I used them for the last change
just because I had a spare set. The bike runs very well with them, but not any better
than it ran with the previous set of CR9E.
