How to change ignition coil

I have a 2005 r6. It just started hesitating like it is miss firing. I thought it had plugs, but did some research and found out it has ignition coils (4). Is there a special tool to remove the coils? Or do you just "pop" them off/up like the boot of a wire, when you have plugs? Do coils go bad? With a bike under 15000 miles? Thanks for the help in advance.

I seriously doubt you have a coil problem with that low of a mileage.
If you want, bring it by the shop and I'll give it a test ride and listen to it, no charge.

I think it's the '03 - '04 that had the recall.
If it is the coil though you can hear it easily.

Have you checked what error codes showed? A lot of people assume they have issues with the ignition coils when it is something else, mainly the TPS. The ignition coils recall is for the 03 model and they switched to Mitsu....
There are a ton of thread pertaining to this on r6messagenet.com.... join the forum and do a search... from what I have read and done, you don't need any special tools... just grab them, turn and pull... they are in there pretty tight... make sure you get them in really good also...

Before you do anything, check the error codes... no need messing with something that isn't broken....
