looking for my sparkplugs

I'm making an slightly educated guess here. Until I know for sure I'm not going to start taking it apart. The white plug is the wire going to the coil pack which is the black thing. Right? And if so how does the black thing come off of the plug? Does it just pull off like the old style plug wire boots? Then there's the ordeal of getting to the plugs themselves. I guessing I need a special plug removal tool? If the plugs are the same size I wonder if I can use the one that came with my Magna?

I've already purchased the plugs and was thinking of having the dealer change them. Just because I figured I'd have to remove a lot to get to them, but today I did some other maint. and got to looking. If that's them I think I can do it myself. By just dropping the radiator down. I'd rather spend my money buying tools and accessories than pay a mechanic.

Yes, the plugs are under the coil packs, they pull up (very carefully). How about you have Motorcycles Unlimited do it when you come in first thing next week for your tires and suspension setup?

I have always been a do it yourselfer and plan on having the bike or one like it for a very long time. Money permitting I will be getting into doing as many track days as possible. If things go well enough and I don't crash too much. I can see even getting a racing license one day. With that in mind I couldn't afford to run to the shop everytime I need some simple maint. Now something like checking and adjusting the valves. Which also needs to be done. yea I'll let a certified tech do that. These are just spark plugs.

Push down on the release clip on the white connector and pull it off the coil pack.
Pull the coil pack straight up off the plug.
When you reinstall the coil pack on the plug push down firmly to seat it. You should hear 4-5 clicks.

Thanks patrick I just finished the job then came in to read your post. the last couple of clicks were a bit tough, but I could see that the coil wasn't completely down. It didn't take too long to figure out that dropping the radiator was a dead end, but the airbox was easier to take off than I thought it would be.

At least you can take the airbox off to gain access....




Mine require a special folding spark plug tool, midget hands, and working blind by feel...
