    Spark Plug - REMOVAL

    How deep do you have to go to get to the spark-plugs ?

    I realize the seat, tank, and more then likely the air box needs to be pulled off. Is there anything else I should be concerned with ?

    Yes, tank, and airbox.

    You need to use the tool in your tool kit under the seat to get them out, unless you have a similar tool. My socket extender wasn't long enough, and there is a weird angle. Good luck. I just did it a few weeks ago. Not quite sure how I remembered to look in the tool kit, but I did for some reason. Otherwise I would have been driving to the store.

    I wouldn't recomend using the tool kit that comes with the bike if you don't have to. Go buy a proper set, youl be happier down the road.

    Once the airbox is off you have to pull the stick coils off. Mine didn't fit with all the extenders on together, I had to take them apart, insert them one by one and then snap the wrence on, the plugs are quite recessed. Make sure you give it a quick shot of air down there to clear out most debry that may have fallen into the cylinders before you put the new ones in and make sure you torque it to spec and NO FARTHER. If you strip something down there your in trouble.

    There is a site somewhere that explains how to do this step by step as there are sensors and hoses you have to take apart, I can't for the life of me remember it though, someone else will though :P.

    After owning an LT1 Camaro for almost 9 years, I ain't afraid of nothin' (takes 3.5 hours to change plugs on them). Bring your bike over to my house and I'll knock it out for ya.

    Every two years is a good estimate.

    Changing the spark plugs is simple- once you GET TO THEM!

    Actually, to just change the plugs, you shouldn't have to remove the fairings. The tool in your factory kit works just fine- or you can use an extension and universal. Just remember to carefully disconnect and REconnect everything attached to the fuel tank and airbox. The fuel cap vent hose likes to slip down between the frame rails, and the main fuel hose connector WILL NOT clip completely unless the line is completely on the pump. Shouldn't be any other sensors or hoses in the way.

    I just changed mine when I did the 15k valve check. They looked new. I'll replace them again at 30k, as I don't have any other reason to tear down that far.
