    Spark Plug Removal

    I've been getting some hesitation lately so i want to check out the plugs. Only problem is i dont know where they are and where to start. On a car, it couldnt be easier, but i'm scared that if i start taking stuff apart on my bike, i wont be able to put it back together And i really dont want to pay $100 to get my plugs replaced. Can you guys point me in the right direction once again? Btw i have a haynes manual i looked at but that didn't really help. I also downloaded the manual someone posted from here a while ago, but that also didn't help too much

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    The best way that I have done it and sure that most on the board have done and will agree is to remove the tank then the air box and you should be able to get at the wires and plugs. A little time consuming but none the less the best way. Others have tried going through the front of the bike but if you have a bigger physique like me, don't try it. There is very little room to access the plugs this way. There are some other threads on this subject on the forum as well. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    Well I'm probably one of the foolish people who have tried the 'in through the front' method as laid out in the Honda shop manual .............. don't do it! Half a day of hard graft and when you have moved everything out of the way the plugs are still difficult to reach.
    Use the top in way as given above. The BB toolkit has a spark plug tool and IMO it makes the job easy when you have access.

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    Job is much easier if you have a good 3/8" drive socket set and a 12" extension bar.

    The extension bar allows you to use the ratchet and then the torque wrench from above the frame.

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    Thanks guys. Took me about 2 hours and a few beers to replace(first time taking off gas tank and doing anything underneath on a bike), but it was a success.

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    I just went in from the top and replaced the plugs, added a PC, air filter, and then pipes. I was surprised how easy it was to get to everything once the tank was lifted. No need to remove the tank. Air box comes out easily, gives you an opprotunity to find missing fasteners, just have to lossen the coils, no biggie. Plugs were fairly easy once I got the boot removal down. The injectors were very easy to get to also. From what I can tell, I will be able to get to the fuel sending unit this way also. / smurf

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    I was just wondering what spark plugs are u using. I have 29K km on my bike and should change the spark plugs, but the only ones what globaldenso gave was IUH27 DENSO SPARK PLUGS

    And these are really expensive 45$ per piece. Is there cheaper ones or u all use these ones?

    Re: Spark Plug Removal

    Mine has done 41,000Kls and I haven't had the plugs out apparently the plugs are supposed to be good for at least 50,000. I am still getting 5.6 litres per 100 kls. She lost a bit of her edge the other month so I put through a injector cleaner as I do approx 400 to 500 Kls a week and the first time I put it in the old power was back. I took off at the lights around 5,000 RPM to get in front of the traffic and she stood up on her back wheel, like it used to when she was 2,000 Kls old. Just a thought
