FWIW, most stations DON'T have a tank for 89......only Reg and Prem and then it's blended at the pump to make 89. That is why when they run out of 87, they don't have any 89 so your left with 93 or going down the road to another station.

Have fun changing those plugs!!!

Actually, it's not 'too' hard if you know how to do it. I tried to change them from the side so I took all that plastic off on my 02 R6 when I actually just needed to pull off the tank and airbox. It is a funny angle though and hard to get the outer coil packs off.

Useful info right there, never knew that... The stations I usually go to mush have 3 though because they have 3 of those colored caps on the ground to differentiate between the different grades and a diesel cap elsewhere.

, it is that hard?? I did look at the service manual and the openings (cylinder head) faces the font of the bike... so I kinda worried... but we will see when I get home from work... also, I can't seem to find the spark plugs anywhere... apparently they don't sell them at AutoZone, Oreilly, etc. So do I have to buy the spark plugs online???

Hey Jet & Teresa... quit whoring my thread and take that elsewhere...
yeah, uh, buh bye....

UPDATE:
I changed the spark plugs and the fuel filter last night in a 3 hour session (mainly b/c the heat shield was a to get out and I had to make some runs to the store for parts). The bike runs really well now. The hesitation is gone and a slight stutter remains only when taking off (in first gear, but is only there when the bike is cold, when the bike is riden for a while, it runs like a champ. I am thinking that my grib or throttle cable may need to be replaced (a project for a different day).

I think my problem was I had fouled up spark plugs and some bad gas... thanks to all who helped me out in this...
