People with yamaha 2006 r6 (how to change your plugs)

ok after a few hours and 2 days in the garage with the heat. i found a easier way to change the spark plugs instead of going underneath the gas tank.

step 1. Remove all of your lower fairings including the panels right under your clip ons. i'll try to take a pic when i get home.

step 2. your radiator is supported by 3 bolts. 1 upper on the left and right side which are bolted into the frame. 1 lower in the middle right in the middle of your exhaust headers. loosen and take all of the bolts out.

step 3. lower your radiator until you see your plugs, just be careful with the wires you might have to unplug your radiator fans. so you can lower your radiator even more to get easy access to your plugs.

just replace your plugs and your done and be sure to gap your plugs. i did mine at .30

hope this helps.
