Get proper plug spanner (hexagonal tube-type thing)

Don't attempt while engine is hot. (you'll burn yourself)

Pull leads off plug tops, unscrew plugs (anti-clockwise)

Inpsect. Should not be all black and oily. If they are go to bike shop.

Screw new plugs into holes. Ensure they're going in straight. They should be as easy to screw in as they were to screw out. If they get tight prematurely you might be cross-threading them (bad) Maybe add a little oil to threads to ease insertion. Don't over tighten. Read instructions on box. About 1/4 to 1/2 turn after the washer seats is good. Shove plug leads back on top. Go for ride.

step one: remove the old plug

step two: replace with new plug

step three: crack open a beer and celebrate your mechanical prowess.

"Not sure the best way to go about it just short of buying a bike manual."



I'd say that 50 buck manual will save you hundreds, if not thousands in maintenance and repair. I'd say the best way to go about it is to get the manual.

I hate to say it but if you need advice on changing spark plugs maybe you should have your dealer do all the service. Use the $50. to take your girl (or boy) friend out for dinner and a nice ride on your good running dealer maintained bike.
