Pair valve. I don't have small hands, and my knuckles hurt. I got past the first two plugs..... Taking a break until tomorrow. The GSXR is much easier to work on.

Be happy you don't have to remove the radiator and tilt the motor forward, I heard that's what it takes to change the plugs on the previous Gen CBR1000RR.

It was a pain removing my AIS system...specifically the plates. But I did it and glad I did.

Fuel injectors and fuel rail. I couldn't separate the fuel line, and didn't want to force or break anything. The whole process took about 3 hours minus the breaks when I got frustrated. Now for the easy part, oil change.
